Expression Placement and Visibility tabs
When adding items from (say) the INSERT menu, the Expression Placement and Visibility tabs do not appear first time round.  One has to place the item on screen and then access the item once more to edit it for these two option tabs to appear and become available.  Examples would be when emtering a Text Expression (X) or Performance Style (P) amongst others.

It would be nice if these two tabs appear first time round one is inputting the items as generally one would know whether one wants the item to be, for example, visible or not.  This would save time in entering music.

Perhaps there is a workaround that I am missing ...

Not a workaround so much as a setup option.

If you go to Tools/Options/Editor
Take the tick off "Smart Properties Insert"

If you do that, every tab will beavailable for each item that you insert.

Thanks Rich.

I would have never thought of that.  And to think that I used to consider myself as a reasonably experienced user!
