Project

1) Create a chord with three notes.
2) Shift-click on the chord, so that a range selection box appears around it.
3) Click [in 3.3 or below: double-click] a dynamic marking in the palettes.

Expected result: a dynamic is attached to the chord.
Actual result: three identical dynamics are applied on top of each other.

Ah, I missed that one. That report is more limited, though. True, text elements such as dynamics are the example I mentioned, but this problem also happens with grace notes, fretboard diagrams, and symbols from the master palette.

Merely giving my 'vote' in hopes this is implemented well (active pull request already...) in the near future . I especially have some interest in this because of a desire to implement a 'Similar Beat' option in the Select all Similar filter, and this would be useful to have dynamics only apply once per chord (being careful not to add dynamics like p - f multiple times even upon extra voices since those don't get an option in the dynamic marks [staff/part/system, but no 'voice'] so they'd be useless playback wise). Good luck if any edits need to happen in the PR.
