Feature Request for Notion 6: PLEASE GIVE US the better way to notate the sustain pedal

Recently I've been making a piece of music which a ton of sustain pedal markings, but with the notation system of "Ped." and "*" it's not hard for the oage to become crazy cluttered very easily. This is why we should just have the bracket format at the bottom of the staves, so it's easier to read, and doesn't clutter the page as much.

I totally agree with adenneuwirth.

We need the bracket system for pedal marking asap.

I also agree, and it's one of the main reasons I don't use Notion 6 for Piano.  Finale, Sibelius, and even MuseScore (which is free) all have bracketing notation for the sustain pedal.

The "Ped." and "*" method has been obsolete for many years now for the reasons mentioned above.
