issue with number field in Staff Space

this issue only started with Musescore 3.

this number field is formatted for 3 decimal places. the problem is that all 3 decimal spaces are filled - by default - with zeros that cannot be overwritten without first deleting them.

I use the Staff Space function all the time to make sure my scores fill the page optimally and to reduce the number of total pages of a score. it is extremely frustrating to not be able to type in a new fraction without first deleting the zeros to the right of the decimal point.

the fact that this issue only popped up with Musescore 3, I'm hoping it was just a coding oversight that can be relatively painlessly "put back."



My guess is that this is due to a change of Qt versions used, 5.4 for MuseScore 2.x and 5.9 or 5.12 for MuseScore 3.x, and as such pretty much out of our control

No, it's our code (trying to update the preview I guess) that triggers this. See #281445: Page Settings: staff space (spatium) control pads input before user has finished editing. There's a PR for this but it's part of a huge change to lots of underlying things and needs a rebase. WOuld be nice to have this issue in particular separated out from the rest of the code, as this is the one aspect of the PR in question that affects the most people, I think.
