Tabbed navigation for styles (and style-like) pages
At present, we have a number of separate dialogues that control aspects of appearance, including general styles, text styles, and page settings. A current (wonderful) new effort is attempting to rationalize the menu navigation for reaching these and other pages (https://musescore.org/en/user/101731/blog/2016/07/01/developing-musesco…).
However, even after this effort is complete, we are still left with a number of distinct but related property pages that, to me, seem closely related enough that they should inter-navigate. I am often puzzled about where to find a particular feature, and wind up bopping back and forth among pages. The logical interface seems, to me, to be a tabbed dialogue structure, as found on the Preferences page.
Here is what I envision for the style page. It is probably desirable to retain the various proposed menu entries that go directly to the tabs of interest. However putting them on a single tabbed page would reduce the "where the heck do I find this?" problem
Here is what I envision for the preferences page (note new tab).
I realize these could all be in a single tabbed structure, but the Preferences tabset is already pretty beefy, and this will no doubt continue to expand in future. So I suggest two tabsets, one for stylish things, and one for preferential things, linked together as shown.
