Stem doesn't move after moving note heads

This bug applies to a recent nightly build 6ba4ef6, and does NOT apply to 1.3.

This bug applies to chords, and does NOT apply to single notes.

1 new document
2 create a chord (2 or more notes)
for each note in the chord
- 3 double click the note
- 4 press the right arrow key 5 times

expected: After moving all the notes, the stem should move to where the notes are.

actual result: The stem doesn't move.

It works as designed. So it's not a bug strictly speaking.

Double clicking a notehead and using the arrow will change the note horizontal offset and not the chord one. For one-note chord, when leaving edit mode, the chord offset is changed and the note horizontal offset is put to zero. For multiple notes chord, we never move the stem, even if all the note offsets are changed. For the stem to move, the user has to adjust the chord horizontal offset in the Inspector.

Comments on this implementation are welcome.

FWIW, the implementation on MuseScore 1.3 is different but also not perfect. Moving the top note of chord (and so the only one too) will move the stem. Moving other notes, will not move the stem.

Status (old) needs info by design

I guess it's good as it is.

I just didn't know about the inspector.

I'll mark this as "by design" and make another issue for my comment on the implementation.
