Certain objects drag in surprising ways
Musescore 3.5 / Mac OS
Generally MuseScore drags the score in response to a click-drag event. If I create a new score generally everything is battened down. MuseScore drags the score when I click and drag:
- a measure
- a bar line
- a key signature
- a measure
- the interstitial space between staves or between systems
- a line break
... essentially all non-note objects.
Given this contest it's odd that the Meter object is a loose canon. I can drag it outside the staff, even where it appears to be associated with a staff or system below. Is this a bug or am I missing something of value here? I can also drag the Meter rightward beyond notes, but on mouseUp MuseScore sends all the notes to its right—even if this is deemed valuable I'd think Meter.y would not track mouse.y
Also odd that (on drag) a full measure rest MuseScore does not drag the score. It just selects the object and does not drag it either, neither in x or y.
When I click a Note:
- MusceScore intelligently constrains the pitch if I drag rightward
- MusceScore intelligently constrains note.x if I drage the note vertically to change pitch
But with Rests we don't see these note-drag behaviors. Rather Rests share some of the Meter-drag oddities—and they are freewheeling both in x and y. I think it would make more sense if rests dragged like notes.
