Edit instrument name directly from score

• Feb 13, 2020 - 23:22

The instrument names for each staff in a score seem to be the only text elements (aside from lines) that aren't editable by double-clicking. I think changing this would save some time from having to open the Staff/Part Properties window.

It'd also be nice to have some text formatting options appear in the inspector when selecting a part name.

My recollection is that someone tracked down one of those extremely nasty "my score got saved with only 0 bytes, no backup or autosave" disasters to a problem with the undo stack on this operation. Probably relating to the fact that these names are generated on the fly, so attempting to undo or redo operations on them is tricky. Anyhow, probably the issue was fixable, but it was easier to disable the operation meanwhile.
