Style setting – duplication?
I am taking dynamics as an example. The same comments apply to other items.
Case 1 - From the [Format]/[Style] menu select [Dynamics]. The following settings are available:
Position above: X, Y
Position below: X, Y
Autoplace min distance.
Case 2 - From the [Format]/[Style] menu select [Text Styles], then select [Dynamics]. The following settings are available:
Follow stave size
Align (left/centre/right), (top edge, centre, bottom edge, baseline)
After a bit of experimentation I found that there seems to be some duplication of function here, but the settings are using different terminology. For example, adjusting [Offset] in Case 2 also adjusts [Position below] accessible using Case 1.
Are these adjusting the same thing? If so, why is one called “Offset” and the other “Position below”? Is it useful to have both methods available? Would it be better if the settings available via Case 2 were moved to become available via Case 1 to simplify the interface?
If they are not adjusting the same thing, what things are they actually adjusting?
