Score Setup Dialog Box
Good afternoon, MuseScorers!
I've got three requests to make setting up a new score a smoother process that makes the computer work harder for the user.
Currently, if I am adding several wind instruments to a percussion score, I have to add all the instruments one-at-a-time, and they are dumped at the bottom of the instrument list. Then, I have to select each instrument individually and keep clicking the "up" arrow many, many times to get all the instruments moved into the correct order. This is time-consuming to say the least!
In this, the Instrument/Score Set-up Dialog box, there should be an option (e.g. a checkbox) that allows the user to request the program to automatically insert all new instruments in score order. In my screenshot here, let's say I wanted to add a 4th trumpet, I could select the Trumpet on the left and after clicking "Add," MuseScore would place it with (below, probably) the existing trumpets in the file. By deselecting the option, the current process (placing at the bottom) would be retained.
If I DO have instruments that I need to move to a new place/order, I should be able to click and drag the instrument up and down the score list. Currently, clicking and dragging simply just slides the selection from one part to the next and to the next. That's not really useful for anything.
I should be able to Shift+Click several adjacent parts to move them en masse, rather than needing to move them individually.
Have at it, friends! Let me know your questions!
