I don't have a good solution for that at the moment, because if I constantly turn the screen refresh on and off, it's going to cause the whole screen to be redrawn every single time an annotation is created, and that flashing would get real annoying, real fast. In the past, I tried to use a method in the Onyx library to update just a specific area on the screen. This caused some user's devices to completely lock up, requiring a hard reboot, so I have no desire to try to mess around with that again.

I'll look into the other issues you've reported, but it would help if you test those things with a tool other than the pen tool activated (unless that is how you were testing it) just to rule out odd issues with the fast drawing mode.

The link icon synchronizes visibility changes among all layers with identical names on all pages of the current song. It also synchronizes which layer is active for editing on each page. This was implemented based on user requests and was added somewhere around 3.0.4 or 3.0.5.

Thanks,

I was probably testing with the pen tool active.
I've restarted MSP and now the x symbol to delete layers appears all the time correctly but it didn't before. I don't know why.
I'm also able to select annotations in the list even with the pen tool active: when I click on one either in the list or on the annotation itself the tool changes from pen to the 'select' arrow

However, having the pen active like you said it doesn't show the new annotation immediately until:
- Change tool
- Click anywhere inside the layers window 
- Also I cannot rename an existing layer or name anew one with the pen tool selected. I must click anywhere inside the layer window and the rename dialog disappears, then I must change the tool and then I'm able to rename.

New annotations are still added to layer1 sometimes and I cannot figure out what are the conditions because they also seem to be added correctly to the current layer.
It is frustrating when everything behaves different after a report and being unable to reproduce it ...
I'm experiencing the same problem here, I can't find a way to see which layer is active in the layers window and I can't find a way to change the active layer either.
