"Repeat a note" by clicking a notehead then pressing "R" in normal mode
I'd like to suggest an extension of the "R" command so that it repeats individual notes after clicking on their noteheads, in normal mode.
A similar feature exists in Sibelius whereby virtually anything selected by a single click (notes, articulations, text, whole bar rests) is repeated.
Current "R" behaviour in MS repeats a note or selection after being selected by shift-clicking or shift -dragging. The modification I propose may seem a minor change but the method I use often (creating a rhythm by using repeated notes, then re-pitching them) suits my way of thinking and working and would give a alternative option to entering step note input mode.
After having and using this feature regularly in Sibelius I really miss it in MS.
For information, the "R" command in Sibelius acts as follows for different operations:
Select a single notehead with mouseclick : R copies (repeats) the note to the next position (overriding whatever comes after it);
Select a single note with articulation(s): R repeats the note and articulation(s);
Select a single note within a chord with articulation(s): R copies complete chord and articulation(s);
Select single lyrics: R copies lyrics to next note (very useful feature);
Title text: R copies text (same font + size) and places it directly below original;
Expression text: R copies text (same font + size) and places it immediately to the right of original.
Select a slur between two notes : R repeats the slur between the next two notes. ** (VERY useful feature)**.
Thank you for considering this!
