Which options are too obvious; which are not obvious enough; which are about right?
Key: Too obvious, not obvious enough, about right
This is one of the worst config tabs, and it's the first one you see!
There is no reason for this to be its own tab.
Sequencer/Record and Mix
These are debatable – if only the notation editor remembered your last setting, it probably wouldn't be necessary to have them as configuration options at all.
When inserting notes… – I think this option is wrong-headed, although I notice one user reported having used it. The proper options are “split notes” or “coerce new note to match existing notes” – but not to permit inserting a note overlapping other notes. This is bound up with voice support however
This one is highly problematic because of the “After quantization” options incorrectly affecting playback and editing in non-notation views. That makes it sort of a recording option, but it's clear that these are intended to be completely notation-specific. Have to think about this.
We can improve the defaults for
External audio editor. Default is Audacity; if MHWaveEdit or Rezound is available we should perhaps use one of those in preference (owing to better JACK support and, in MHWaveEdit's case, better workflow for quick edit/save turnaround).
