Feature Request? Alternate clef for transposing instruments
I want to check here to see if I should submit this as a feature request or not.
MuseScore 2.0 handles transposing instruments in scores quite well. My feature request is for an enhancement for instruments like Tenor Sax whose display while in "Concert" mode is different by quite a bit as opposed to non-concert mode. In particular, the Tenor Sax is transposed by an 14 semi-tones (an octave plus a whole step).
Typically, this is displayed in treble clef, and when not in Concert mode, looks just fine. However, an "F" on the lower part of the staff in non-concert mode displays as an Eb an octave below the staff when in Concert mode, usually overlapping with adjacent parts on staffs below the tenor sax in a multi-instrument score. At the same time, this is difficult to read.
MuseScore already offers a treble clef with a tiny "8" below it indicating that it sounds an octave below what is displayed.
So, my proposal would be to allow transposing instruments to not only specify how many semitones they are transposed, but also what clef they should use when being displayed in "Concert" mode.
Thanks for any thoughts, and thanks again for this wonderful piece of software!
