Visual indication of changes made via properties panel

It would be nice to have some sort of visual indication that an item has properties changed in the properties panel.

An example of when this would be useful is adjusting slurs. Manually adjusted slurs would display in a different colour, so I can tell at a glance which slurs are default and which I have adjusted by hand.

My instinct for this feature is to draw the item in a different colour, similar to the note colour options for different voices and range. This would allow the colouring to be turned on and off as needed.


Thanks for the suggestion, @SmithAlexander. I’m not sure how practical this is since many items will end up with at least one property set, but I’ll definitely file it away in the old memory banks and think about it some more.

Yes, that is a good point.

The properties panel is split into categories (Notes and Rests, Beaming, Ties, etc.). Perhaps a filter for which categories are considered when colouring the item? Similar to the View—Signposts menu.

Thanks for considering!
