Instrument change effects long/short instrument names
Changing instrument via "Change Instrument" in text pallet changes long and short instrument names. Is this supposed to happen?
I would expect this to happen (as it does) when you change the instrument via staff/part properties, as this is a more permanent change to the overall part. But, mid-staff instrument changes shouldn't be reflected in long/short instrument names. This is most noticeable in scores.
It should only affect the instrument sound change. The intent for a mid-staff instrument change means the player will eventually return to a previous instrument, and/or instrument the part is written for. When reading a score, in cases like a musical where reed players tend to change between numerous instruments, or potentially even rhythm or percussion parts, it's easier to scan and follow a staff line when the long/short instrument name is consistently the same.
