Style Setting: Slurs on Grace Notes by Default

• May 24, 2020 - 23:56


It would be really cool for there to be a style setting that would allow MuseScore to automatically add slurs to grace notes / acciaturas. This is a really common engraving practice. The current method of doing so, which requires that the user click on the grace note to place the slur on it, is on the tedious side as it requires really precise mouse accuracy in order to click on the grace note.

I don't think it is that much of an annoyance to click on the note. What is annoying is that when you have multiple, it only slurs from the first to the second. When I shift click the note to select it and its grace notes or apogiature, then press S, it slurs from the main note to the next note. I would like there to be a way to slur multiple grace notes—manually adjusting the slur is very fiddly.
