using keyboard arrows allows to overlay notes

S4 - Minor

Steps to reproduce:
1. write two notes
2. move one note over the other using keyboard arrows
3. add an accidental to the note
you still see only one note but you can hear a chord
4. add another note elsewhere in the cord
the accidental disappear but you still hear the chord.

Expected results:
Using arrows should either block when it would overlay two notes (that's how it works in NtEd).
or it should skip over this tone.

That's a bit nonesense, isn't it? It's hard to overlay 2 notes unless you do it on purpose. Why should anyone want to do that??

First, don't say "won't fix" because you're not the one deciding this. Second, one part of his complaint applies to another open issue (#14449: Bitonal chords (eg. G# plus Gb)) regarding two notes on the same note, one with an accidental and one not. So if anything his issue might be a duplicate (or the original) of other similar posted issues.

I've also posted a similar issue regarding how easy it is to accidentally overlay the same note multiple times using the keyboard entry. When two+ notes are overlaid, I feel the note color should change so that you can see this as it will affect how the chords note heads get oriented.

Well, i'm sorry, but in any moment did I understand that he was talking about bitonal chords, specially because it was me who created this issue. What i did undestand is that he was moving a note to the previous beat using the arrows, which is really nonsense.
