If two note are tied across a barline, and a new timesignature is added to the second measure, the tie is broken. In 3.0 this always happens.
In 2.3.2. it does not happen if the added timesig is the same as the current one, but it always happens if there is a change in timesig.

Workaround is to add the tie again after the timesig has been entered.


Comments

I can reproduce using a build I made a few minutes ago :-)

1) new 4/4 treble clef score
2) fill first two measures with middle line B's
3) tie last B of first measure to first of B of second measure
4) add 2/4 (or any other) time signature to measure 2

Result: tie is lost. I can also confirm it was the same on 2.3.2 except if you added the same time signature, because we were just smart enough not to rewrite measures in that case. But then deleting the time signature would remove the tie.

See also #101556: changing time signature deletes ties. That one is old enough that I think I'd close it in favor of this, though.

Given it's not much different than 2.x and workaround is easy, downgrading to focus on the more critical issues.
