Further to this thread: Problem entering drum parts .

If you have a percussion staff selected and are in note input mode, selecting a note in the Drum input palette will effectively deactivate the virtual piano keyboard (by mapping the selected note to all the keys).


Comments

The phrase "Fix drum note entry, avoid to be blocked in chord mode when mixing drum/melodic," is not understandable. And, there is no issue number displayed next to the fix.

No the fix has nothing to do with this problem. I'm not even sure this problem is really a problem... what would be the expected behavior?

(My mistake. The fix documented in the release notes is for another issue.)

If you enter a bass drum, for example, from the Drum input palette (DIP) and switch to the piano keyboard, all the keys now play the bass drum. If you enter a snare drum from the DIP, and switch to the piano keyboard, all the keys play a snare drum. And so on.

This needs to be fixed so that the piano keyboard is not affected by the previous input from the DIP.

Still the case in MS3. The Piano keyboard needs to work independently of the Drum Input Palette. So even if the Bass drum is selected in the DIP, the user should still be able to play and enter the full range of percussion instruments from the Piano keyboard.

It appears that this bug affects both the on-screen piano and/or any attached MIDI keyboard. MuseScore allows you to mix Drum Input Palette (DIP) keyboard shortcuts and Piano/MIDI keyboard input. But if you enter an instrument note by double-clicking from the DIP, this forces all subsequent Piano/MIDI keyboard keys to default to that same instrument. This effectively disables them.
