MuseScore should auto-select some drum note on first entry to note input mode
S5 - Suggestion
This is the first time I've had this happen. Serious impeadment to my work flow. I am unable to add concert bass drum notes. May be a one time thing, not sure.
Update: Apperantly you have to select the bass drum note... the only note the bass drum has. Why does this not auto select?
For drums with multiple notes, it wouldn't be clear which to select. But we could certainly someday add an auto-select of something - it's something we've been discussing.
Note that selecting something is not necessary, though. The keyboard shortcuts work right away, and so does double-clicking the icon directly (no need to then also click in the score). And also, once you select something once, it should stay selected for the duration of the editing session.
