"Mark Irregular Measures" should be a Global Preference
This new feature in MS3 adds plusses and minuses to show when the duration of a bar has been lengthened or shortened accordingly. Sometimes this can be useful, but especially in pickup measures and in measures where the length is intentionally changed by hand, these marks are not necessary, and what's worse, they masquerade as markings which in fact have established musical meanings:
- minus = tenuto? ( also microtuning and comma shifting although that's not as established )
- plus = pizzicato? percussion note? horn stop? ornament? (also microtuning, not as standard )
These markings clutter up the score and are misleading. There is value in being able to turn on the markings to check a score, but the markings should not be on by default. Since it seem you don't want to change the default to FALSE (off), then please make it a Global Preference so those of us who are annoyed by this can turn it off once instead of having to do it every single time for every new score we write.
