Would you please add predefined drum sticking marks (L (left), R (right) and F (foot)) to Fingering panel?

Sticking marks should be inverted in this case, shouldn’t they?

Even if user can implement custom elements, I think sticking is useful for general (not geeks) users.
So it should be predefined somewhere in Fingering or drum elements.

you mean general (non geek) *drummers* ;)
If we do add this for drummers, let's also add 6 and 7 for trombonists http://musescore.org/en/node/50286

Oh and by the way, I'm a french drummer, and L and R are not really international. I use a dot for left, a circle for right.

In any case, this is for after 2.0.

I moved L to Fingering panel to empty [???] box but MuseScore (instead of adding new element) replaced the (6) string element.

I moved L to new panel to empty [???] box but MuseScore (instead of adding new element) crashed and closed. Windows 8.1 x64.

It’s definitely something to improve. It’s not working as expected even after reading the manual.

By the way, I'm a Russian trombonist (and drummer).

FWIW, as far as I know, customizing the palette doesn't normally work by dragging to dpecific boxes. You drag to the palette in general, and the elements is automatically assigned the next available box. If you've previously cleared a cell, then you can add to it by dragging directly to that cell.

I couldn't get it to anything wrong in numerous attempts - not replacing existing, no crashes. Which build are you using? Can you find a specific series of steps to reproduce a problem?

@MaximAL it's advised to open a new issue for each individual bug. If it's related, you can link to the related one. Right now, the flow in this thread got stuck I'm afraid.
