I started entering Paul Simon's American Tune, but on the third measure the first quarter notes (Major F, 2nd inversion) suddenly come to a long pause. I don't see anything that would cause this. What am missing?
Just discovered this software, and have only been digging into it for a couple hours, but enjoying it.

That is because the default tempo is 1/4 note=120BPM and a 1/8=80 is the same as 1/4 note=40BPM. If you open the play panel (F11) it will show the tempo near the top.

Thank you. I didn’t realize it was or could be set differently for different measures. After fiddling around, no pun intended, I think I now understand. I’ll read the documentation more before posting, next time. Thanks for the help.

Not only measures, but the tempo of a series of notes can be gradually changed.
