Automatic notes subdivision between measures, as Sibelius does

It may be very useful that Notion automatically divides the notes that fall between a measure and the other, as Sibelius and Musescore do, instead of marking them in red.
For example, in a 4/4 stave, you put a 1/4 note, then a 2/4 note; if you put another 2/4 note, Notion picture it in red because the total timing (5/4) exceed the time signature; Sibelius and Musescore, however, automatically divides the 2/4 note in a 1/4 note , write another 1/4 note in next measure and put a tie on both, restoring its initial value (2/4).
This is useful ever when copy/paste groups of notes that have total value different from the value of the measure.

I actually really like the Notion way of doing this in many composing scenarios - if I'm messing around in one bar, it doesn't affect the music in later bars. If they do adopt this, I hope it will be an optional mode!

I'd vote this if it was an alternative method, while leaving the current one still available by default, because that's the one thing I love in Notion.

Eu venho perdendo o tesão pelo Notion, falta muita coisa pra entra da fato num mrcado tão competitivo, o sibelius vem surpreendendo cada vez mais! percebo que os custos falam muito, o sibelius tem um custo beneficio por conta da interação com o studio one, já o sibelius chega a ser mais profissional e completo por sua independençia, penso que talvez seja essa a diferença de funcionalidade!
