In the Notation Window, clicking on the "Opt." button brings up the Notation Windows Options dialog.

In that window you can set the "Clefs split at:" for where notes placed on the staves, are to be located on the treble or bass clef.

The default split point is "C4". Anyone unfamiliar with this numbering system, wouldn't know whether the next note "up" was C#4 or C#5. Similarly, is the next lower note "B4" or "B3"?

If the entry box here had "spin arrows" (like the ones to set Tempo), you could set the clef split point "higher" or "lower", simply by clicking the up or down arrow, without having to know anything about what "C4" meant.

Thanks!
LLOYD S

+1. Nice idea. Not only for the reasons you noted but also because it makes the user interface more consistent.

Lloyd,

You probably already know this, but just in case...

When one is in Notation Mode, there is a display that shows the pitch of the note according to its reference number C3, C4, etc. This displays as the mouse is moved over the staves.

Thanks Noel!
Yes we quickly found that helpful display.
The problem came about when I tried to show a "newbie" how to set the split point, and she had no clue as to what C4 meant.
