1st and 2nd Voices

• Nov 15, 2012 - 06:46

I need a little help from someone please:
I need to place a ¼-quarter note (1st Voice) and a ⅛-eighth note (2nd Voice) in the same measure but in the “Note Properties”, under (Note Head Type) the drop down lists' minimal option is the quarter note. How am I going to achieve this goal if there are no smaller note options to select in the drop down list?

Try to read Voices again.

  1. Click on the first quarter note in the measure,
  2. press N,
  3. click on the green 2 in the voice selector
  4. press 6 for the duration of a half (or click on the half in the toolbar)
  5. press 0 to enter a half note rest and align with the last quarter
  6. press 4 for a 8th note
  7. press E if you want a E.

What you did in measure 4 is plain wrong, this not voices, but a chord in voice 1 with one notehead being modified.
And indeed this doesn't seem possible with 1/8 notes as their note head isn't different from 1/4 notes.
This is not how voices work in MuseScore.

In the attachetment I've added your 1/8 note, flipped the stem of it and the 1/4 noted and deleted the extra voice 2 rests
