Split measure note values

• Jan 15, 2018 - 22:53

I'm having some trouble getting the layout of this piece right. On page 5 of the PDF, you can see that the second measure on the second line is split between beats 2 and 3. I used the "Split measure" functionality (outlined here: https://musescore.org/en/handbook/measure-operations#split-join), but you can see that Musescore changed the dotted half note to a half note tied to a quarter note. Is there a way around this so that it stays a dotted half note like in the PDF?

I also can't get the first half of the split measure to go to the same line as the previous measure as in the PDF, no matter how many spacing adjustments I do.

(This is for Openscore).


You can't do that in MuseScore without some unacceptable results for OpenScore. I would suggest you keep it as a single measure so you can properly annotate it. When I join the measure, both end up on a single line without issues. You can then fix the tied notes by selecting the 1/2 note and pressing "." the ties will go away.
