Tuplets + Parts+ Linked Staff = extra/missing beats

• Aug 1, 2023 - 19:55

inserting or pasting tuplets when a part score is open w/ linked (tab) staff causes problems. Attached file has been corrupted in this way.

I can confirm this file is currently corrupt, but in order to investigate further, we'd need to know the precise steps to reproduce that problem, starting from an uncorrupted score. Note there have been various other bugs involving corruption in older released that are fixed now - those same steps will no longer lead to corruption in 4.1.1. But scores already corrupted by older versions will remain corrupted even when opened in 4.1.1.

Can be done via:
New Score piano+guitar,
Add linked tab staff to guitar,
Open guitar part (normal+tab),
Add a quarter triplet in either the score or the part,
The triplet marking with not exist in the linked staff in the part you didn't insert into
Attempt to save and it's corrupted.
