Question about initial rests and true rest
Let's make a new score in 2/4.
It starts with all bars filled in by half note rests (at least it looks like that).
I will call them 'initial' rests. Their behavior is not the same as 'true' (entered by the user) rest:
A1-click on a initial rest in a empty bar
A2-click on half note symbol => the initial rest stays as it is, it is not changed in true rest
A3-press 'a' => you enter a quarter 'a', not a half note
B1-click on a initial rest in a empty bar
B2-click any note duration smaller than half note => the rest is split accordingly
B3-click on half note duration => the rest becomes again a half rest, but now a "true" one
B4-press 'a' => you enter a half note 'a' (replacing the 'true' rest), no more a quarter
I know that I should first go to note input mode and everything would run fine, nevertheless I have some questions:
- Why A2 doesn't already change the initial rest to a 'true' one (i.e. forcing next note to be a half note instead of a quarter)
- If you are in 4/4 instead of 2/4, then A2 does the job (change the initial full rest in two half note rests) and A3 enters a half note instead of a quarter.
Don't you find confusing that on empty bar, [click half note - press 'a'] enters a quarter in 2/4 and a half note in 4/4, 3/4, ...? That would be solved by letting A2 already 'acting' when the rest matches the full bar as well, instead of apparently doing nothing in that case.
