Horizontal and vertical auto-fill
Ability to select a score pattern and auto-fill a selected number of bars and staves with the pattern.
A score pattern can be anything: a melody, or rests of different duration.
What is new
With this method is possible to auto-fill both horizontally (over bars) and vertically (over staves) fill at once.
Issue current implementation
Multiple use of the R key required to fill an area (bars and staves):
- Copy the single measure,
- Paste into the first measure of the target area,
- Press [R] a few times.
- Crtl-C to copy the pattern (one or more bars),
- Shift-Select the target area (multi-bar, multi-stave),
- Crtl-V to fill it with the pattern.
Alternative implementation suggestion: a visual auto-fill feature similar to Microsoft Excel autofill (see screenshot).
