Extracting multiple, different clef separate parts from a single score part
When I prepare new scores for my recorder group I'll often need multiple versions of a score part. A recent example is my adaption of 'The Fairie-round' by Anthony Holborne, published in IMSLP, https://imslp.org/wiki/The_Fairie-round_(Holborne%2C_Anthony)
You'll notice that the Altus part in the full score is notated with an octave-down treble clef in the full score and with an ordinary treble clef in the separate part. What I'd like to see is
I extract a complete set of separate parts from the full score
then I change the clef in some of the separate parts without influencing the clefs of these parts in the full score. And I should be able to have multiple variants of a part with independent clefs
That's, however, not what happens. As soon as I change clef in an extracted part that's reflected in the full score as well (in MuseScore 2 as well as 3). So I need to save the separate parts needing different clefs as new MuseScore file as described in the documentation. That works fine. BUT there is a major drawback: if, not to say when, you become aware of a typo in one of these saved separate parts you have to either fix the typo twice (in the full score plus the saved part) or recreate the saved part anew from the full score, thereby losing its layout settings.
From my perspective as a retired IT-developer that's a error prone nuisance: one should maintain only one instance of a source file.
Hopefully my feature request isn't too difficult to implement.
