Page Size Units
I started this as a Feature Request, but not enough people responded, and I believe that this is very important and belongs in the beta. The current UI for page size units is both clumsy and abnormal. MuseScore always defaults to millimeters when you open the program, and then if you change to inches, it keeps the units at inches for the duration of the application session only. This is not normal, and it's very clumsy for those of us who do not use millimeters.
I will define the "standard" UI conventions based on a small review of popular desktop publishing apps. There are two standard UI paradigms for page size units:
1) As a global user preference. Units text appears in various places, but you can only change the units in the user preferences, not in the page settings dialog.
2) As a document property. The units are stored in the file as a single new field in the XML.
MS Office and Apache Open Office use #1. Illustrator and Scribus, the more advanced publishing apps, use #2. My preference is #2, as I like the more advanced approach because I use different units for different scores.
I would like to get consensus on which UI paradigm to use, and then I am willing to code it. Neither one is much coding work. I have already coded the #2 paradigm for a previous PR, so that is easy for me. The user preference is a simple task, if that's the consensus choice.
As I said, I believe this is an important yet neglected feature. It's also very easy to fix. I'm interested in getting some kind of feedback & approval for this task prior to beginning any work. Thanks.
