hmm - that is unfortunate, you are interpreting the view as "saying
create music snippet", in fact this Snippets bar with those buttons was
already there, it is just that all other bars and menus are hidden.

Well, in more detail: Esc is the default shortcut for the first item in
the View menu "Hide/Show Menus", this cycles through three views, two of
them with no menus (you should hide the snippets bar if you don't use
it, i.e. View->Snippets turned off), the third of these is by default
the page view (so two Esc presses). In your page view you can drag the
red horizontal bars up and down to give several systems on the screen.
(You *can* do that in any view in fact, but it remembers what you have
set for the particular score for a particular view, so it is useful to
set up the views for your purposes for a given score).

My mistake, it is in the Movement menu, as it can check measures in all
staffs in the movement ...
