Replacing Dynamic Markings using Palette (Single Click)
P2 - Medium
S5 - Suggestion
When a dynamic marking (pp, p, mp, f, etc.) in the score is selected and the user clicks on a different dynamic marking in the palette, replace the selected marking with the one that was clicked on in the palette.
This would make editing them just a little bit easier, more comfortable and more intuitive.
The current Workaround is to just delete the dynamic marking, then select the appropriate note/rest and then go to palette and select a new dynamic marking.
I definitely support this suggestion because I expected it to be the default behavior the first time that I tried to change dynamics from an existing one to a slightly different one e.g. f -> mf. I think this suggestion would make changing existing dynamics much more intuitive and the several clicks saved would be worth it.
I think this should count as a function issue, not a UI issue
The way we classify them, it's Ergonomical. It works as designed, but a better design is being proposed. I supposed it. I even started to implement it a few months ago and got it working for layout (that's trivial) but I didn't know enough about the playback code to get that working.
