Possible bug/glitch with cross-beaming notes.

• Aug 25, 2021 - 17:19

When I use a triple staff (two treble staffs and one bass staff) sometimes I want to cross-beam a note between two staves. However, if I cross-beam a note between the second and third staves, then for some reason I want to reverse the cross-beaming, it moves the note from the third staff, to the first staff - not back to the second staff. Yes, I know this a rare issue, but I just want to report it so that it is fixed for Musescore 4. Also, Musescore 3.6.2 will only allow you to cross-beam to the staff immediately above or below the current staff. Will not allow you to completely cross a staff to put a note on the third staff (i.e. going from staff 1 to staff 3). This is also an rare request, but I would like to be able to do this in Musescore 4.

You know, you are right. I was trying to move a two note chord. I am glad it is already noted as a bug. How bout the other related issue. Musescore will not let you cross-beam from staff 1 to staff 3. I know this is something that would be rare (in fact I only seen it once) and is really just a visual issue of putting a note below middle C on the bass clef rather than on a ledger line below the middle staff, but it would be nice to be able to do it for Musescore 4.

Can you show a published example of what you mean, so we can understand better? I mean, in theory, I can see what it might mean conceptually to move a note cross-staff from the first to third staff, but I'm having trouble imagining what one would expect it to look like or why anyone would ever choose to do this. The more clear it is why this would actually be useful in real-world cases, the more likely it might someday be implemented/
