First visible bar position in continuous view

• Sep 6, 2014 - 13:26

When using the continuous view to edit or playback a score, when the last visible measure doesn't fit fully on the screen, MuseScore jumps this measure to the Left hand side of the screen as below where it is hidden behind the continuous panel:

It is possible to still edit the measure while it is "behind" the contionus panel, however it is quite confusing at first glance (this area is relatively crowded) as to where the measure has gone, especially when inserting notes. It would be easier to keep track of where you are up to if MuseScore would move the beginning of the measure to just after the continuous panel, as below:

Is there a setting to change this behaviour, or should a new issue be opened?

System: Windows 7, MuseScore 2.0 Nightly build 6 Sept 14 "cfa99c6" and Musecore 2.0 Beta 1 "1efc609"

Unfortunately, I looked at it and it's not that easy to fix because we don't know the width of the continuous panel before the score has been moved. Though, with my next commit, it should be improved.
