There should be an option is the pallets that gives you "R" "r" "L" "l" "B" "b" "1" "2" "3" "4"and other possible stickings. It could just automatically place it below the notes, and be tied to customizable key strokes, treating it like an articulation mark. This would make writing drumline music a lot easier, especially since the 3 update. The update took away the ability to paste, next note, paste, next note (ctrl+v, right arrow, ...) when using staff text, and also made it a lot more difficult to place the text after putting it into the score (had to turn off automatic placement, and the letters bottoms wouldn't line up with the same vertical placement). These could be placed in the MDL workspace under text.
