Greater Control in Formatting and Layout
We are wishing for greater flexibility and control in spacing and song layout.
- Why is note spacing uneven due to differing time values? If the note is a 1/2 note it gives more space between notes than if it is a 1/8 note. (See example files.) This restricts control over how much we can fit on a page and gives an uneven view.
- We wish for complete control over ‘Stretch’. Currently there are limits that prevent being able to squash unlimited measures onto one score (staff). Could this limit be removed allowing any amount of squashing?
- Could it be possible to adjust Format > Style > Lyrics > Min. Top Margin / Min. Bottom Margin individually for each score rather than only for the whole song? This level of customization could improve song appearance as well as space saving issues. As it is, one score (or staff) with a more-than-average note range may control the spacing for the whole song when it is only needed for one score. Also, Min. Top Margin has a limit on how much you can control it while Min. Bottom Margin has much more range when going to the negative number settings.
- Format > Style > Measure > Spacing. Could this be allowed to go lower than 1.000?
We are using MuseScore Version 22.214.171.12478 / e26f7c4 on Windows 10.
Thanks for the work you are doing!
