Misalignment of staff

• May 8, 2018 - 02:22

In some measures, the notes on the treble and bass clefs are way out of alignment. I can't figure out how to make them line up.
The music is complex, with syncopated triplets in the treble clef, and triplets alternating with quarter notes in the bass clef.
Two of the problem lines are in the attached file.
Any suggestions?

I don't have an explanation as to why, but starting on beat 2 of each measure one of the staves is starting early. This should not be possible, but if you click the notes on beats 2 and 3 you will see which notes are early. How did you enter the music?

At the bottom left of the window is the status bar (you may need to check the status bar in the view menu to see it). It tells what beat a note starts on. You will see starting with the 2nd beat in the treble of the 2nd measure is early, and starting with the 2nd beats of measures 3&4 the notes are early. If you slow down the tempo (I used 5 bpm) you will be able to hear the notes are played slightly early. You don't notice it at full speed because humans are off by that much all the time.
