I insert 10 measure stacks. The new measures are small, very tight. I add some quarter notes to the measure, but the notes remain closely cramped in each measure.
Should I not be using page view for note entry?
This is a personal choice of whichever you feel more comfortable with. I usually, 90% of the time, use scroll view. I feel it keeps more of the score on screen than page view does. Afterwards, I check articulations and expressions, page size, margins, etc., and run Perfect Layout. Done and it looks great.
I should say that when I use Page View to enter notes, it is because I am using few enough instruments that page view lets me see multiple systems on my screen. If I were working on a large enough score that only one system appeared per page, I might well use Scroll View instead.
So, as Ernest says, it is ultimately a personal choice; and as he implies, it depends on the circumstances. Use what helps you be most efficient. And best wishes.
