Rests input and modification
When one needs to break a rest to multiple ones more than two (4, 8, 16) of the same value he should perform a lot of operations. MuseScore 2.0.2 don’t support dividing a rest in more than two equal values. As well as such function for a selected group of rests. The first feature I propose is to allow such division by pressing ‘Shift’ or ‘Alt’ key + value number. For ex., to introduce 8 eights in 4/4 bar I’ll have to press “Shift+4”, instead of 4 steps currently.
Second feature I propose is to allow this mode for a group of selected rests, as well in multiple bars as in one. Now to make 4 quarters from 8 eights I should make 4 steps, and it could be made by only “Shift+5” when the group is selected.
Thirdly I’d like to have possibility to create multimeasure rests directly by selecting needed bars (and pressing a key – ‘Ctrl+M’ or ‘Del’) and not automatically through all score that it sometimes annoying, as I have to mark rests break before (and to control that) etc.
Also MuseScore 2.0.2 have different behavior when a rest is stretched by changing the value. If there are some notes later they are replaced by the rest, but if there are rests (even in another bar), they are not replaced but shifted forward – see attachment. I thing the logic should be the same.
