Normally, with melodic instruments, rhythm input mode causes the cursor to move forward automatically after entering a note value using a number shortcut without the pitch being specified. With a non-melodic percussion staff (e.g., single line), the cursor remains still, does not proceed, whether one is following a note or rest. In other-words, automatic cursor forwarding in rhythm mode doesn't work with non-melodic percussion staffs. It seems to function the same as the default step-time mode.

Often when scoring percussion instrument I want to enter the rhythm first using Rhythm Mode and then "re-pitch" the note to the desired instrument in the drumset using Repitch mode, following the Rhythm than Repitch sequence similar to scoring melodic instruments. Currently, in the Musescore 3, including Release Candidate 3, I cannot do that.
