With the new design in MU4, the tempo is displayed at the top of the screen in the menu bar.
To change the tempo, my first intention was just to click on it and change the value.

Unfortunately, that does not work. I believe it would be great benefit to allow changing the tempo like this and is very intuitive to do so.

The question would be, what exactly should this do? Add a new tempo text at the current cursor position? Hunt backwards to find the previous tempo text and alter its properties? The playback properties only, or also the text itself?

On the other hand, as a way to access a slider for a tempo scaling override like the old play panel, that would make sense.

So from my point of view, adding a percentage value to allow the "override functionality" to be added, should not rule out having the ability to directly change the tempo using this setting.
