In an empty jazz lead sheet, enter a jazz chord that is:

A(sus)

See how the text "sus" is below. This is a reduced example. The real case was "Ab13(sus4)no3" (in this case "4" is superscript but not "sus"). I can think of ways to question writing this notation, but no matter what, it looks like a rendering bug. See attached screenshot. Using MuseScore 3.6.2.

Note, the same occurs with "Ab13sus4no3", so this seems definitely like a rendering bug.

Comments

Yes, there is a test suite, but it can't include every possible permutation. It's not common to put parents around "sus", so that case was probably never considered. The paren code expects you to be parenthesizing superscrited expressions apparently.

There is work being done to greatly improve this internally, should be appearing sometimes after MuseScore 4. So hopefully we can test that case then.
