Overlapping note heads

• Sep 8, 2009 - 23:49

Hi everyone. Am having a problem with two voices very close together. The note heads of voice 2 overlap the noteheads of voice 1 instead of sitting to the immediate side. I've attached an image showing the problem.


You can see that the second and third notes of the bottom voice are sitting over the second and third notes of the top voice. But on the original sheet, the stems and notes of the second voice are slightly to the right of the first voice.

Anyone dealt with this before? Thanks loads...you're a helpful bunch!

Two workarounds.
- Change Voice 1 et voice2. To do this, select the music and go to Edit -> Voices
- Move the bad notehead. Double click on it and use the arrows on your keyboard.
