I've run into several instances in which it would be very handy to move notes around in a score or insert them. I was working on a score today and discovered that it would have been better to have started it with a half rest instead of a note. I've also had problems in which I discover that I used a longer note, say a ½, when it should have been an ⅛ instead. But when I change it I’m left with a rest I can’t seem to get rid of. I can't find any way to insert a note at the beginning of a score without deleting everything else or starting all over again, which strikes me as being a needlessly complicated way to fix the problem.
I’m not trying to be argumentative here, but I posted a comment like this before, and with all due respect the responses I got seemed to be saying that I simply didn't want to be able to do this, or didn’t understand enough about music, even though I do. I politely say that there needs to be some kind of insert mode. I’m aware of the problem of pushing the entire score around, but this could be avoided with some thought. I’ve worked with several other scoring and sequencing packages and they all allow something like this. Thoughts?
