Unable to split a chord between treble and bass clefs (grand staff)

• May 5, 2014 - 10:36

This fix has never come to pass and I'm really curious as to why. For example, let's say you have a quarter-note C major triad, middle C-G-E (top to bottom), and you want to move only the E and G to the bass clef but still sharing the same stem of the middle C above in the treble clef. This is a common notation in piano music. I see that a feature request was posted here 4 years. The same deal with Sibelius. A cumbersome workaround was posted on its website 7 YEARS ago but no fix or plug-in. Is there some technical issue that makes it nearly impossible to fix? I would think a plug-in would be available by now. Actually I see this more as a bug than an addon feature since it's standard piano notation.
