Below the bottom string notation of bass in lute tab.
The standard representation historically of bass notes below the staff of 6 strings in lute tab was to put a letter or a letter preceded by a slash below the staff. All notes I see recommend using a 7th string, which is unreadable and not done historically, or faking it by using the lyric area to fudge in the proper notation, which does not convert, and does not sound. This should be a standard notation ability of the software, that when you are at the bottom string and hit a down arrow, the location jumps below the staff and lets you enter the lower note in the same way as was done historically, and indeed as it is read and done today, the letter as if it were the bottom string, but a fourth lower, and another fourth for each slash preceding the letter. (French) The complementary ability for Italian would seem to be in order, as well. I've been faking it with the lyric method, but that is unsatisfactory as well, as the font is different and it doesn't sound or convert. I've been using Musescore for years for notating old lute tabs in standard musical notation, and the conversion and clarity of the tab feature would be wonderful if this were fixed.
