delete a bar in 3.0

• Oct 11, 2018 - 21:07

I must be missing something obvious in the GUI.

When I in MuseScore 2 I want to delete a bar completely, I select it, right click and select 'Delete Selected Measures'.

I cannot figure out how to do the same thing in MuseScore3. See the screenshots about what I mean. Is this a bug, or just a design decision that I missed somewhere?

In MuseScore 2, the keyboard shortcut for 'Delete Selected Measures' is Ctrl+Delete (Mac: Command+Delete). The same keyboard shortcut works in MuseScore 3 as well. It performs the so-called 'Timewise Delete' function, which is not limited to removing entire measures. So if your goal is to remove the entire measure, you must make sure that the entire measure is selected.
