Feature Request - Add ability to control vertical height of track in Staff View

Recommended Posts

Some tracks have notes way below the staff or above the staff. When viewing those in Staff View along with other tracks, it would be great to be able to spread out the tracks vertically to avoid overlaps and problems with editing notes that are too close to another track. Just like we have a horizontal zoom control, it would be great to have an additional one that moves the tracks apart vertically. 

Alternatively, please give the ability to change default track space height in the Layout view for the staff view tracks. 

Right now, this problem of going outside the staff is especially painful when dealing with Key Switch tracks that require notes in low octaves below what 8va Bass Clef normally shows. When those tracks appear between normal tracks and are shown together, the overlaps of notes between tracks are not great.

You mean this bug? You can right-click to move them or ctrl+ right-click to copy them(Need to be put on the notes.). Or you can go to the event list, which has all the parameters you want to adjust.

You can also press 8 on the keypad to move them, there are also bugs in Nudging it to left and right. Sometimes chords and expression can only be moved once.

If just the keyswitch problem, why not create a midi track to store them, or to use articulation maps.

He is just talking about this thing:

The space between the tracks can be dynamic as regards to the highest or lowest note in the track.

Also he said that he is not using PRV and already requested Articulation Maps for the Staff View.

Using Articulation Maps for keyswitch is a good advice though.

I wouldn't write something like this, which is hard to read. And changing the clef should solve it. but, if the notes you edit are too close to other tracks, there will be some bugs like gif 1, which will make it difficult to select and edit. not only the marks,even the notes will be affected.So I don't recommend using staff to edit notes.

Why not edit notes like this:UnpleasantValidAustraliancurlew-size_res

When you work at a wide range it will not solve it. If this thing only needed for key switches, Articulation Maps in Staff View can help him, but not solve the issue.

The issue can also be resolved by adding extra staff depending on the pitch range of your work like this:

Also, this topic is about improving Staff View. I think the best help would be supporting his idea without leaving the concept.
