Beta Pallet Idea
Overall, I like where the pallet bar is going. But I can't help but feel this all could be taken one step further. If there is one thing I actually like about Finale is that each "Pallet" can be it's own window. I can't help but feel it almost wants to do that now when I drag a pallet around. Unfortunately, I can only place it back on the pallet bar.
Imagine for instance you only want to work with Dynamics and Phrasing, You could take the dynamics and Lines pallets off of the bar you then can close the whole pallet bar thereby freeing up a whole lot of horizontal space for your score (which is at a total premium even with today's widescreen monitors).
Maybe you can move the dynamics and line windows up to where the notes are? There is so much potential for in-the-momement customization.
