Help us to improve Note Input workflow
We are looking for the ones who wants to help MuseScore to improve usability by implementing Tantacrul's redesign of the Note Input flow. Once it is implemented, there will be no need to enter "Note input mode" each time you want to enter notes :)
As you probably know, not so long ago, Martin Keary aka Tantacrul published a video about MuseScore. The video is full of constructive criticism and, what is the most important, the belief in MuseScore as an open source product with incredible potential. Marc Sabatella generously prepared a detailed report on the items discussed in the video. We addressed some of the ideas in recent releases. Still, some items required user research activities and preparing a complete redesign.
We are pleased to emphasise Tantacrul's interest in developing MuseScore. Martin prepared few redesign documents resolving the issues most often faced by users: palettes, Instruments dialog, drag & drop usability, note input, etc. Martin's redesign ideas are impressive with the simplicity of the solutions used and the potential for improving usability. At the moment, with the in-house team, we've almost finished redesign of the Palettes that will lead to better usability and ease of use.
Among other things, Martin prepared a redesign for the notes/rests input and the interaction model flow. We are pleased to share these improvements with you and ask for help in implementing the proposed changes.
Call to action
We are inviting everyone interested in implementing the changes to read the attached document. After that, in the comments we can discuss the details if you should have any questions. Once the ones who want to implement the changes are identified, we can organise the work on the disjoint parts of the functionality (different sections of the document).
We are happy to support the development of this project and will be open for any questions 24/7 in Telegram.
