A personal score style is important.

I prefer the Notion workflow to all others, but I seriously, SERIOUSLY miss the ability to store my personal layout preferences: Paper size, notation sizes, margins on different pages, setting up subtitle to work as title on all following pages, size of the page numbers on following pages, instrument names on following pages, automatic implementation of my personal copyright mark, a ziilion other little chages I've made - The jazz font takes up more space so i've made them smaller to fit nicely etc...Phew.

I can open a template I've created sometimes, but it doesn't work when importing from Studio One - Each time I do I have to painstakingly go into the Full Score Setup, because all the little changes I made are gone. And when trying to approximate my layout I've forgotten half of it. Today the best option is to first import to Notion, then export as MusicXML, afterwards import into an old Sibelius version to get it right.

Notion should be going for the title. We all know you can do it. All aspiring notation apps recognize the need to store their users personalized layout setups - except my app of choice - Notion.

Please implement the option to save your own layouts - and to make any of them the default.
