Count-in flexibility: Requesting a setting that governs the number of count-in measures
In MuseScore 3.6.2:
When the first measure of a selection is a full measure—or when the user has selected the first note of a full measure—MuseScore plays one full measure of count-in clicks.
Generally I've observed that students need 2 full measures of count-in. Ideal MuseScore would offer a convenient way for them to chose the amount of Count-in they prefer.
I'm requesting that MuseScore allow users an option to set the number of full Count-in measures to a value between 0 and x. MuseScore's default is 1. And there is no other choice.
I like the way MuseScore handles anacrusis. At an anacursis—or when the user has a note other than the first note of the measure selected—MuseScore plays the Count-in for 1 full measure ... plus the "empty" portion of the anacrusis, or the portion of the measure preceding the selected note.
With Count-in measures = 1 we get the default behavior
With Count-in measures = x MuseScore plays x full measures of count-in clicks
With Count-in measures = 0 MuseScore plays the "empty" portion of the anacrusis only (or the portion of the measure preceding the selected note.)
