Incorrect bar numbers with multiple measure rests

• Oct 9, 2009 - 10:16

Using 0.9.5. If I use the multiple measure rests feature the bar numbers are wrong. Suppose I start a 5 bar rest at bar 10 the next bar with notes should be bar 15 (bars 10, 11, 12, 13 and 14 being rests) but the program has it as 11.


The measure number at the start of a multi-measure rests is incorrect in 0.9.5, but correct in the latest nightly (I checked using r.2176).

In the example you cite the start of the multi-measure would say 15 instead of 10 (this is corrected in the nightly builds). The bar after the multi-measure rest is actually numbered correctly in version 0.9.5 and the nightly builds.

Thanks for the screenshots. 0.9.5 looks exactly like mine. r2176 looks exactly like I would wish it. I am reluctant to move to a nightly build version - last time I did that the software was very unstable and kept crashing, and I found I could not move back to the previous stable version because it could not read the files produced by the later unstable version. Guess I'll just have to wait for the next stable release.

Glad that you posted your experience with the prerelease versions. I was considering switching myself to get around some bugs that are proving rather annoying in my current project, but I guess I'll stick with my hack-ish workarounds to avoid the instabilities and file format incompatibility. Thanks for making the rest of us wiser. :)
