MuseScore has the option to hide the fret number or not for a tied note (Show back tied fret mark)

It seems other software packages always hide such a note but display it between parenthesis under some condition:

  • If the tied not is on a new system
  • If the note is bended, has a fingering or other text attached

Comments

My suggestion (which will cover, hopefully, all exceptions—not just the ones you've listed) is simply to expand the functionality available when "Show back-tied fret marks" is unticked (OFF). Allow the user to make any back-tied fretmark visible.
