I dislike unwanted popups as much as you do.
What I plan is to add a highly visible warning icon in the staff header when
some inconsistent elements (clef, key or transposition) in superimposed
segments make the staff unreadable.
By clicking on that icon the user will get some written explanation on the
current inconsistencies. Yes : I was thinking of a popup window here.
But please note that this explanatory window will not pop up automatically :
A beginner who doesn't understand what the warning icon means may click on it
and get the needed explanations.
An advanced user who immediately understands the meaning of that icon, will
never click on it and will never get any unwanted popup.
That said, I possibly misused the word popup.
When yo click on the matrix or notation editor button, doesn't an editor
window pop up ?
Nevertheless this window is not called a popup ...
Maybe the explanatory window I was talking of should neither be called a
Do you agree to such a feature ?
