In the new 3.6 version, the automatic movement of the anchor points of hairpins can be disabled by pressing CTR while dragging with the mouse.

But with dragging dynamics (f, p, mf..), this doesn't work and the anchor point still moves while tweaking the layout with the mouse.

Please implement the same CTR+drag function for temporarily deactivating the anchor movement with dynamics.

Or even better: Put an option under "Style..." for deactivating ALL automatic anchor movement. This would give users like me more freedom in their decisions.

Workaround No Yes

Agreed. The good news is, for dynamics, keyboard adjustments works fine. That wasn't true for lines and thus was more crucial to get a fix in place there.
