Temporary Bulk Hiding of Score Elements
I'm using MuseScore version 1.2 version 5470 on 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04LTS Linux.
I'm creating keyboard scores for works of Baroque composers. Using Domenico Scarlatti as an example, purists want a printed score more or less as Scarlatti wrote it - for an instrument such as a harpschord that has no dynamics. Horowitz and many others have demonstrated that, when played on a modern piano, good performance of these works requires such things as dynamic changes and judicious pedalling (a harpsichordist can achieve tonal variety through use of registration changes and such.)
So enough background - what I would like to do is create a single score in which I can do bulk hiding of such things as pedalling notation, crescendos and the like so I can print the appropriate version. I realize the basic "hidden" attribute lies somewhere in MuseScore since I can show and hide individual elements to my heart's content.
I attempted to select several elements at once, and apply the show/hide feature, but it only acts on the first of the selected elements. So this is really too tedious to be practical.
Is there some way I'm not seeing that will permit this - better still, is there a way to just say "Hide all of the Pedal markings" for instance. If not, would this be something suitable for an enhancement request?
Thanks in advance.
