Extending lines faster (crescendo, staff and system texts, accel., etc.)
S5 - Suggestion
It would be nice to be able to extend the lines such as Crescendo and others measure by measure, by pressing shift+ctrl, similarly as when selecting full measures.
I agree this would be a nice feature.
Are you saying the standard shortcut Shift+right is not working for you in some specific score? Please attach your score and precise steps to reproduce the problem.

This shortcut never works, in any partition, shift+right does work for selection but not for extending the lines of the accel. or crescendo.
Create a partition, add quavers on a minimum of 3 measures, add a crescendo on the first and extend it.
Shift+right does work for me, when the line is in edit mode
Works perfectly for me too. Please attach the specific score with the problem and give more precise steps to reproduce the issue. Assuming the crescendo is already added in the score you post, it should be as simple as:
1) click crescendo in first measure
2) press Shift+right
Result: crescendo extends by one note at a time.
I think the confusion here is shift+right vs. shift+ctrl+right.
When extending a selection, shift+right expands the selection by one note, while shift+ctrl+right expands the selection by an entire measure. But when extending a line, both commands only extend it by one note. It would be more useful if shift+ctrl+right expands a selected line by an entire measure.
