So that would work for Spanish Romance, the Tarrega Étude and a small number of other pieces.
What I find speeds up note input is liberal use of copy and paste -- two bars only need to be a bit similar to make this worthwhile, and if you can find half-a-dozen bars that follow the same voice pattern it is truly useful. As an experiment I have just engraved the E minor section of said Romance, from start to finish (launching MuseScore, creating a new score, inputting all the notes (in three voices) and exporting as a PDF) took less than 8 minutes (the second section would be faster still, because an awful lot of the work is already done). So 15 minutes to engrave an entire piece -- how impatient are you?
