The ability to input double/triple dotted notes via step entry

A linear view of the score

A "redo velocities" similar to redo pitches



PS I sincerely hope that the company isn't going the route of producing an Overture sample library bundled with the program, a la Notion, as I believe that's a losing game...

I think triple dotted notes would be a very low priority. However, I totally agree on double. A simple key modifier to add a double dot is in order (one that applies for step or mouse entry). Furthermore, outside of these input modes, having the re-"transcribe" routine include double dotted results would be nice too. But because results may vary, an option to turn the latter on or off may be needed here.

I believe this is in the works, but may not be a priority.

This would be interesting. But while I see the benefit, I think it may be easier (at least in the interim) to simply include an option to record velocities when "redo pitches" is engaged.

yeah, maybe triple dots are less common... but maybe we could have that the period key, instead of toggling between dotted/non dotted, simply adds dots? To cancel dots then it would suffice re-striking the note value number...

that'd be useful, to scroll the score while composing, and would resolve those cases when you want to tie two notes that appear on different pages or something like that...

in this case, you'd have to re-enter all pitches, but imagine you have loaded the midifile of a chopin etude, and you want to give it more expression without having to replay the actual notes, that option could come in handy...
thanks again!
