The display boxes in the upper right should show you what will happen if you insert a note at the mouse.
yes but that's a real pita, your eyes are on the mouse cursor. It gets even more complicated when you enter notes below or above the system. Drawing a scale in e major for example consists of four sharps, if the measure has a natural c it will stay the whole measure long. Your brain must switch forth and back between graphical notation and tonal names that belong to the scale you are in in this very moment.

Can be done via mouse modifiers. By default, shift+ctrl+alt+click enters a note.
Ok thanks.

Can you explain more, please?
A default behaviour of staff direction in single notation with treble clef is beams go up from the lower notes until they reach b'' then go down. This is the automatic behaviour. Can we have a manually change of the directions so that for example all beams go up or down.

The existing MIDI transpose window will work to actually transpose the MIDI. We can add a per-track option to transpose the display only, so for example C remains C in the MIDI but is displayed as Eb.
Yes, this is for ochestral work when a clarinet for example notates in Bb but sounds in C.

Rests are added automatically, because this is intended as a view on the existing MIDI, and MIDI doesn't include rests. Eventually we may support various display-only preferences like adding rests, forcing notes to notate in some way that does not reflect the actual MIDI (like notating on the beat without forcing the MIDI to be on the beat), etc.
Yes that would be good, also let us change the order rests are displayed! For example a 4/4 measure with a 1/8 and a 1/4 rest at the end is displayed 1/4-1/8 and not 1/8-1/4 in some cases.
Let me get some notation done, i will post a few screen captures then.

If you see incorrect beaming even after checking out how the rhythm pattern affects it, please let us know. As for overlapping notes at different pitches, this is intentionally allowed. Notes should snap to the ends of other notes (this can be enabled/disabled in options/snap settings), but if you want to enter a note in the "wrong" place, you can.
I'm familiar with overlapping notes, in staff notation this are multiple voices, just like you notate guitar for example. Single treble clef, three voices for example. But when one voice exceeds the rules of 3/4 in one measure and ends up with 3/4+1/16 its a bug, not overlapping notes.
