Problem in MuseScore 2.0b1 with repeats starting at the beginning of a staff?

• Sep 8, 2014 - 16:51

I attached a picture of what I think is a problem. I forced a new line in the score at the beginning of a repeat, but the repeat starting barline ends up both at the beginning of the line and at the end of the preceding line. This doesn't seem right. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this how it's supposed to work?

Thanks for any info.

have you selected the right barline?


If the barline is the correct one the graphic form is ok
(maybe I did not understand?)

I've attached 3 .mscz files, using the default score that comes up when I launch the program.

The first one, I put a left had repeat at measure 5 and a right repeat at measure 8.

The second one is after I delete the "newline" at the end of measure 4.

And the third is after I've put the "newline" back in by clicking on the left repeat between measures 4 and 5 and hitting the return key.

Note that after that last step, I have a left had repeat at the end of the first line after measure 4, and another left had repeat at the beginning of the second line before measure 5.

I believe that the correct behavior would be for the first and third scores to have the identical appearance.

I hope this makes it more clear.

Thanks! :-)

Thanks so much Marc.

That's exactly what I was wondering. If it wasn't a known bug I was going to file a new issue.

BTW... Job well done to you and all the other people that have poured their blood, sweat, and tears into 2.0. It's outstanding!
