Delete Selected Bars

• Jan 17, 2019 - 14:35

Hi all, with the latest version of MScore,
OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 06a66a2
whereabouts has "Delete Selected Bars" gone. It must be there but my 'manlook' can't see it. It used to be under "EDIT". Help appreciated.

maybe and thank you for your reply but it used to be in a menu. That's where I look for lots of stuff when I don't 'use' something very often. Hence me having to ask as it had disappeared off the menu list.
As a supplementary, did it have to be deleted from the menu list? Was it taking up too much space? I'll use the shortcut (providing I remember what it is) but most of the shortcuts I use tend to be things I use often. Deleting selected bars isn't one of them.

To be clear, it wasn't removed, it was simply renamed to reflect its expanded capabilities - it is now called "Tools > Timewise Delete". The name change is because it is no longer limited to complete measures; it can also delete partial measures. But as per the issue mentioned above, the new name is not particularly user-friendly, and there is still some debate as to best how to rename it.

There are UI design guidelines from Microsoft, Apple, and others that describe how menus should be structured, and while they sometimes are ambiguous or in conflict with each other, we try our best to come up with a consensus on how to best follow them, often after some debate. Feel free to read up on some of these and then participate in the never-ending discussions ! :-)
