There have been requests for control over what is linked between score and parts. So that one could have elements appear in the score but not parts or vice versa, or otherwise differ. I'm trying to understand what makes sense here.
Right now, most elements are linked so that adding one to or deleting one from the score also affects the parts. But many properties of those elements are *not* linked. So for instance, you can set an element invisible in the score and have it still be visible in the parts. That seems expected, but other properties one might expect to be linked are not - such as note properties like small, head group, etc, line properties like style, hook height, etc. Or maybe some *don't* expect these to be linked.
I don't actually have a specific problem with any specific choices made, but it does seem a bit unpredictable, and I know people do want more control. So like I said, I'm trying to figure out what makes sense.
I had been thinking mostly in terms of breaking the link between elements, to allow an element to be deleted in score or part without affecting the other, but now I'm realizing that perhaps at least as interesting would be provide control over how proerties are handled.
