Split measure results in 2 measure rests

• Jan 28, 2017 - 20:44

When you split a measure before the current note (in the edit|measure menu), the result is 2 measures with measure rests in them. I think that the normal result should be to fill the measure with appropriate rests.

I changed measure 3 in the oboe to a 1/4 rest to show what is actually happening.

This worked in several measures I tried. Has this been previously addressed?


I also changed measure 2 for the oboe to rests, I should have kept it a measure rest for demonstration purposes. This happens in both 2.0.3 and 2.1

A full measure rest *is* a rest of the appropriate length, namely one full measure, however long (or short) it may be.
Don't confuse them with whole rests, which use the same graphical symbol, but a different alignment: whole rest is left aligned, a full measure rest is centered.
