A notation program for composers - what ideas do you have?
Users of MuseScore are engravers, composers, arrangers and performers (or combinations of these). In this topic, I'd like to focus on ideas that mainly benefit composers. If you use MuseScore for composing, are there any tools that would make the composing process easier? All ideas welcome, even ones that would be difficult to implement. This is a brainstorming session.
In case there is any confusion, this is not a thread from the MuseScore team looking for input. I'm just a composer who feels that many notation programs focus on engraving tasks (certainly a necessary foundation). I have a sense that a program written to aid composers might be different from today's notation tools. If this topic actually inspires someone to add a feature to MuseScore, that would be great!
To get the ball rolling, I will provide three separate ideas in follow-ups.
If any of the proposed ideas are actually implemented somewhere already, please let us know! I've only used MuseScore and a trial version of Notion 5, so my experience with notation programs is limited.
