With latest version of Notion for iPad, when chords are entered using piano pad, last chord is preserved when next button is pressed: would it be possibile to add an option so this feature can be enabled / disabled according to user preference?

Thank you

Hello, I have the same issue and I contacted the developers, that answered very promptly.

They advised my to check here and it case to make a feature request.

I also proposed the same solution i.e. making it optional.

Meantime a temporarily solution can be implemented: pressing on the chord mode button on the left, in order to make the cursor advance. In this way it will behave as it was in the previous version, it will deselect the chord end it will be easier to proceed in the creation of the scores.

Thank you

Thank you for this. I had a message stating that there were a lot of requests to preserve the chord and I could not find a single one in the Notion Feature Requests. Thanks to nikolaybogdanov's temporary solution, imputing my music should take me significantly less time.

Or making it optional and on/off on the chord diagram (eg. red or both chords lit, if on, grey or once chord lit if not) so you can see what mode you're in

Yes. This drives me nuts. Other than that love Notion, but this is a big problem. It's making me look for different notation options.
