I am sure I read this request on this English forum some time ago (but I can't find it). Also on the French forum, here: https://musescore.org/fr/node/284011

Current Tablature behaviour with MuseScore:

To switch from the 1st string to the 6th string, you need to go through all the intermediate strings (lot of unnecessary extra-keys = waste of time, and tiring in the long run)
Indeed, the cursor stops at the edges of the tablature and does not jump from one extreme string to the other. (See first animation)

Desired behaviour : as for Guitar Pro (second animation): to go directly from the 1st string (top string) to the 6th (lowest), just go up (in the void) to find yourself on the 6th string.
Similarly, in the opposite direction, to go from the 6th to the 1st string, it is enough to go down once.

Makes sense to me. I guess there is the special case of lute bass strings to consider, but the same idea should apply once you reach the end of those.

Thank you for your consideration.

Of course, and even more so: I could have chosen the following simple example as a demonstration: for an instrument such as theorbo, you have to type 15 key strokes to get 2 single notes! :(

Title editing. Better. Includes all plucked string instruments.
