The "Drum Tools" display option is accessed by right-clicking" on an empty space in the toolbar area (or on the title bar of the Inspector)." However there are some bugs:

  1. "Drum Tools" only appears on the list after the user enters Note input mode on a percussion staff.
  2. It is possible to enter Note input mode on a pitched staff, display the "Drum Tools" and enter notes from the Drum input palette!
  3. "Drum Tools" is actually the "Drum input palette."


Drumm tool not shown in the View menu, and the Text tool, showing up as needed, is not listen in either the View menu or the right-click Toolbar menu.
My guess is that the Drum tools should not be shown on that right-click menu.

Another bug: if you have 2 score, one has a drum staff, you enter some 'notes' in the drum staff, then close that score, the drum too stays open, even for that other score you're still having open, to get rid of it you need to untick it from the menu bar
