Trouble with banjo tab in altered tuning
I'm trying to enter a score with banjo tab, and the banjo's 5th string is capoed at 7th fret. This is common whenever the banjo is played in the key of D, so the drone is an A instead of a G. But, it's not working. I changed the string data (staff properties -> edit string data), but it doesn't connect properly with the note-based score. If I enter a note plucked on 5th string open (0 fret), it appears on the 1st string 7th fret. That's the right note, but the wrong place to play it. So, MuseScore knows I've entered A4, but doesn't believe it can be played on the 5th string. I can move the note to the 2nd or 3rd string on the appropriate frets, but won't let me move it to the 5th string, even though that's where it was entered.
Am I doing something wrong, or is the banjo's 5th string just too weird for MuseScore to handle properly?
