Sticking Tool Improvement
Work flow would be improved if Sticking can be copy and pasted
The Sticking tool behaves differently on a single line instrument. See the bottom alignment of "Snare Line A" vs "MDL Snare Line" (The default for single line percussion instruments and marching instruments should be stems up)
The Sticking tool is useful for ALL percussion instruments, so I wouldn't suggest locking everything to a certain y-axis. (when notes go below the staff, the sticking will need to follow, like in the xylophone part.
For the MDL Bass Line 10 part, I don't believe there is a great solution, my preference would be to align the bottom even though all of the sticking would be a greater distance from the staff.
