Tempo text v Play Panel

• Nov 22, 2020 - 11:40

I have a saxophone quartet score in 4/4 time and I can't work out what's going on with play back tempo.

If I mark the start of the score with tempo text crotchet = 120 it plays back at 80bpm. This is because the play panel tempo is set at 80bpm and with tempo text set at the start of the score the play panel slider won't change that 80bpm tempo setting.

If I delete the tempo text at the start of the score then I can go to the play panel and move the slider to set the tempo at 120bpm and it plays back at 120bpm.

Could you please explain what's going on here and explain the relationship between tempo text and play panel tempo setting.
