Better slur and tie tool/functionality.

I feel like the slur and tie tools leave something to be desired. They're functional but I feel like just have the word "SLUR" and "TIE" is a little odd and took me a bit of getting used to in terms of where I actually place the tool. I think it would make more sense to have the graphic reflect the result, so have it look like a slur. With the tie, maybe just a hot key like SHIFT T that makes it connect to the next note. Just some thoughts.

That's interesting - like the iOS version. Yes. Might be useful.

Additionally, the ability to be able to add slurs that overlap for different chairs with different voices on fast runs would be nice.

Most noticeable when slur or tie to a 2nd ending or Coda - This is critical.

I would like to be able to tie notes 'through' a repeat.

Cross staff lines are incredibly messy and should be corrected. But I'd kinda want for slurs to be less automatic and magnetic, or at least the ability to change it's magnetism to the score off so I can freely move them around without the rest of the score being altered
