'Note input' mode
Here is is again!
When a questioner asks elsewhere on the forum to disable 'note input' mode, the conversation morphs into ties et al. Re-framing the issue, and not answering the question.
My question is simple. There are times when I find persistent and automatic reversion to activate 'note input' extremely disruptive. I do not score that way. Almost every note I wish to enter, I must save the complete score, then press 'esc', to clear 'note input'. Without saving the score, 'esc' does not disable note input mode. I wish it did. When I forget, or I am distracted, 'note input' messes up my choice, and I have to go back.
Yes, in a simple run, note input is useful for a couple of bars. Until its intrusive persistence messes me up again. Then ... sigh.
Unless it is a particular problem to write into the software, why not allow a command to disable 'note input' when opening the score? Purists can still ignore that disabling command, and have the default setting as it is now.
