Timing Musescore 3.6

• Jan 19, 2021 - 19:07


I'm working on a Hymn that is in 4/4 time. I added in the notes in the first measure and I ended up with an 1/8 rest on the end of the measure. I should have enough room for a 1/4 note, unless I'm counting wrong.
I'm looking for my error.

Your measure only contains 3.5 beats, not 4. I added rests in Voice 2 to make the count clearer. Now look at the small grey minus signs, which mean that the measure is shorter than the standard 4 beats:

My guess is that you accidentally deleted a 1/8 rest with Ctrl+Delete, thus reducing the length of the measure by mistake?
