Single click interactions
We all know that MuseScore is powerful notation software that can do almost everything in terms of music notation. We conducted a dozen of user testing activities with the ones who never used MuseScore and found that "double click" is an interaction pattern that is absolutely hidden for newbies. Respondents could not edit slurs and hairpins to adjust their positions; they couldn't even apply elements from the palettes. Double click is rarely used in touch interfaces as well (that's why the young audience isn't familiar with the double click interaction pattern.)
We aim to improve usability and make MuseScore as easy as possible for newcomers keeping all the fine-tuning features for professionals. We are glad to introduce the single click concept designed by Martin Keary (Tantacrul). The new approach provides an easy way to edit elements with a single click and makes double click unnecessary.
Check out the new approach and let us know what you think! We are always here to listen to your feedback and support.
There is a separate topic dedicated to introducing Telemetry in MuseScore.
