Single-note dynamics/crescendos doesn't work with tremolos.

I don't really know if this is a bug or a feature request. When you (that is, the developers) said you were incorporating single-note dynamics and crescendos, I thought that would work for tremolos as well. But it doesn't. Is it a bug or have you just not gotten around to it yet? It's not a critical problem, but it just seems strange to me that this feature was left out. If you want to test it on your own computers, you can use the attached score; I could be missing something. :)

I don't often write for piano, so I've missed this to this point. It seems on the piano the crescendo is ignored in error when you put a tremolo on it. MuseScore thinks that since a piano cannot crescendo a single note it should ignore all whole notes with a hairpin under it. We all know that this is in reality a series of notes, so the crescendo should be heard. This explains some rolls with hairpins that weren't sounding right to me on a marimba.

That makes sense. I don't have any experience coding MuseScore, but is there a way to make an exception in the programming for tremolos? Something like, if tremolo = true, then enable single-note dynamics for that instrument for that specific section of the score. (If that's even possible)
