Problem with 2 voices

• Jul 6, 2011 - 00:34

Situation: Voice 1 has a quarter note F. Voice 2 has a chord comprised of 2 half notes, F and B-flat below middle C.
Problem: The Fs of both voices overlap each other. I've tried to fix that by fixing the note properties by adding a leading space in front of voice 2 or a trailing space after voice 1. However, the program is treating all 3 notes as one chord. I can't seem to get the 2 F notes to be shown separately.

Example: See Bohemian Rhapsody from 100 Greatest Pop Songs measure 12.

If you double click a note, you can move it with the arrow keys. The proper notation in cases like this would be to line up the stems. So double click and either move the quarter note left or the half right (if you do the latter, you'll also need to move the other notehead. Since you can't control which note you'll click, you can temporarily transpose one up or down.
