available pre8

26. All attached symbols (accent, staccato, etc.) should be placed in a space in the staff or above/below the staff. These marks should not clash with staff lines.

27. Increase the available attached symbols (bow direction comes to mind immediately, but there are several that can/should be available)... or better yet, allow users to create their own palette of articulations since music fonts tend to include a huge variety).

28. Allow multiple articulations to be added to a note (staccato and accent for example)

29. Cross staff beaming on grand staff

30. Allow for double sharp and double flat (maybe micro accidentals, too). Double accidentals are needed in certain keys where modulation and tonicization takes place.

31. Allow clef changes per midi item. For example, the track starts in bass clef for 2 or 3 bars, but then the range increase to where tenor, alto or soprano clef becomes more appropriate. This helps keeps notes on one staff instead of numerous ledger lines. This is somewhat common for instruments with wide ranges (like viola, cello, and some wind instruments).
