Changing time corrupts music
(0.9.5, OS X Tiger, G5)
Changing time corrupts the already arranged music.
I typed a song that includes some time changes. First I used one regular time and wanted to insert the time changes afterwards. Instead of keeping the sequence some notes disappear.
Here’s an example. File “Timetest”.
a. Insert 3/4 in measure 2. Last note disappears.
b. Insert 2/4 in measure 2. 2nd half of all bars disappears. Klick and delete 2/4-sign. Piece displays 4/4 at the beginning but still changes to 2/4 from bar 2.
c. Insert 6/4 in measure 2. Rests appear on “5+6” in all following bars.
Klick and delete 6/4-sign. Piece shows 4/4 at the beginning but still changes to 6/4 from bar 2.
Expected behaviour: The timeline of notes etc. should be independent of the timesettings, and these should easily be changed any time.
This puts up the need for a “move” function:
“move selection (or all following) for-/backward xxx measures/quarters/eights etc”
I know this is no minor issue, but for serious work it is essential.
