about the chordname builder

Hi Werner, Leon,

I have been playing with the chordname in MuseScore (r862).

I started with CTRL+K and typed in FMaj7. For the second chordname, I used the chordname builder.

When exporting to musicXML, I got the following results:
The first one
<harmony print-frame="no">
  <kind text="" /> 
</harmony>
<harmony print-frame="no">
  <kind text="" /> 
</harmony>

The second one
<harmony print-frame="no">
  <root>
    <root-step>F</root-step> 
  </root>
  <kind text="Maj7">major-seventh</kind> 
</harmony>

Obviously, the chordname builder does a better job.

So, why not let the chordname builder popup when pressing CTRL-K. Or do you have a better solution for this inconsistency?

Last thing to say: the chord builder is a very nice improvement. Thx Leon!
