Very nice!  This is certainly a first step, thanks.

Please have a look at the attached image.  Let's assume that I want to
reproduce just the middle bar, with all the correct slurs and ties.
Wouldn't it be nice if I could enter, say, the last quarter of the bar
before and the first quarter of the bar after to produce the correct
slurs and ties, instead of fiddling with slur and tie parameters?

If there is another simple solution I would be glad to know how to do
