Feature Request - Set Absolute Measure Number

Apr 19, 2017

The current options to adjust the measure number (under Measure Properties) are:
1.) Exclude from measure count
2.) Add an offset to the calculated incremental measure number.
I am requesting a third choice that would set the measure number to an arbitrary number and then fill in from there.
Jazz lead sheets have the same form repeated a number of times: first for the head, then for the solos, then maybe for a shout chorus. It makes sense to reset the measure number to "1" at the beginning of each these sections. This can be done with an offset but if the number of measures in the previous section(s) is adjusted the offset will be wrong and need to be updated.
Microsoft Word organizes lists this way. When you right click on a list entry, you can choose to:
1.) Continue numbering (the default)
2.) Restart numbering at 1
3.) Restart at an arbitrary number
