Can't tie whole note of chord to half note in next measure

• Sep 12, 2014 - 19:25

That's not a 100% accurate title, but hopefully this makes sense. I'm trying to tie one note of a chord to a half-note in the next measure while playing two different whole notes in that next measure. Here's the desired result.


I can create the tie correctly. (Step1)


But when I add the first whole note in the second measure, the tied half-note disappears. (Step2)


Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Thanks! Of course, it seems so simple now :) I had to use 3 voices and the final formatting isn't optimal, but it works. First, I added the first add'l whole note as Voice 2.


Unfortunately, when I added the second whole note, all the notes aligned together.


So I added the second whole note as the 3rd voice.

Meanwhile, instead of using three voices to work around the alignment issue in 1.3 (which will still does not produce the correct results), just use two voices then apply a manual adjustment - double click one of the whole notes, use the arrowkey to move it to the right, then do the same for the other whole note.
