Brackets and Parentheses for Dynamics in MuseScore 4

• Dec 27, 2022 - 17:43

Apologies if this has already been suggested - I tried to find something along these lines but couldn't, probably because there's an obvious solution... but I'm not satisfied by it!

When I try to add parentheses and brackets to dynamics the spacing is very inconsistent. For example, a sfz dynamic looks fine with parentheses, however when the sfz is replaced with a forte dynamic the opening parenthesis is much closer than the closing one.

This can be solved by adding extra spaces to between the opening parenthesis and the first dynamic, and admittedly, this works fine... but it's not perfect, and different dynamics work better than others.

I think an solution to the problem of inconsistency would be to add brackets and parentheses as an option in the "frame" section of the Properties panel alongside the square and circle.

I'm new to MuseScore having used Sibelius for over a decade, and I'm very impressed with everything I'm seeing so far. Looking forward to future updates and improvements!
