I write allot of drum scores. I like using MuseScore over others, however I have come across some very annoying things in the text to above staff lines.
When you place text L/R on the score then place an accent > on the appropriate note, without a bass drum in the score, the accent drops below the staff note. However if you place a bass drum in the bar the accent moves to the top of the staff.... there by throwing all the text out of line. This also occurs when using CTL 3(triplets)..5..7..etc.. It moves all the text. I have also noticed that to align all text with either triplets (CTL 3 etc..) or accents > placed above the staff is very difficult to do. There has to be a better way of aligning text above the bar.
I have included a simple example of this. Bars 1 to 9 had the text aligned.. perfectly until I added the bass drum... after that the the accents > moved up to above the bar automatically mis-aligning all the text.
Bars 1 and 2 I tried to place some kind of alignment there but still because of the accents > there is still misalignment there.
In Bars 7, 8 and 9 even though I tried to align the text. Still they are misaligned.
Bars 10 and 11 you can see they are also misaligned even through I compensated in the alignment of the text.
In Bars 12 and 13 are good examples of that which I am describing of the problem. Bar 12 has the bass drum added.. and the accent > has moved up above the staff misalignment of the text where the accent has now moved automatically to. In Bar 13, there is not bass drum and the accent was automatically placed below the staff note.
In my opinion (for that is worth), there are many aspects about the text alignment functions that truly need looking into. Especially as user for doing drum kit scores, which is my main use.
Please feel free to realign all the text and accents > above the staff.. time it to see how long it takes and send it back to me.
This is just the first problem I have but if this one can be attended to, I would be more than happy to include the other text related problems...
