What I need is a tool to see clef, key and transposition at a glance when
dealing with too much staves to fit in the window.
Of course, they are already in notation (and transposition may be found in
segment parameters) and but, when using notation linear mode, I can't usually
find them without scrolling the current view.

The screen copy shows what I am trying to get (don't look too much at the
header aspect : it's unfinished).

LilyPond is a very good software which gives very good printed sheets.

Should there be the option to print the transposition of the instrument?
Then you would not write "F-clarinet", but "Clarinet" and "in F" or "in Bb" could be added then automatically.

But RG goal is different : the user edits music on a (always too small) screen
and needs to see on it as much data as possible.

The track headers drawback is to reduce the window useful size, but it's
always possible to hide them when they are not useful.


The proposed  "Track headers" seem to be a tab with a close button. Looks fine.

I was only worried about the note canvas which should contain--in principle--only printable things.
