Would it be possible to have a function in NOtion that makes it possible to move notes between staves that belong to a grand staff?
I know Notion has a function called "Cross - Staff" but it's not what I'm talking about.

This new command would disconnect the note from a beam group, substitute it with a rest and then move it to the adjacent staff, keeping its effective position and incorporating it in the notes that are already there (or inserting rests before / after, accordingly to its position on the bar)

Example: I import a piano piece from S1. The split point gets everything nice and in the right place, but for a couple bars I want to move a few notes from the right hand (treble clef) to the left hand (bass clef)

The command I'm requesting would let me select a note (or a series of notes) and then would transfer them to the top staff to the bottom, while maintaining the same musical position.

Every time I work with NOTION I end up wishing that command existed.

Many thanks

Thank you for the feature request.

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue.

Same here, I import piano tracks a lot from studio 4 and this feature would be most welcome. What is the workaround now?

I would also like to see cross-staff slurring.

I beggars belief that the ability to select a sequence of individual notes and manipulate them independently of the unselected notes in the measure, does not exist.  I want my money back so I can spend it on a competent program.
