Collision-note-rest-voices.png

OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 3.0.0, revision: 3543170

Repro steps

  1. Create a new score
  2. Press F to enter a quarter F
  3. Select all and exchange voice 1 and 2 back and forth
  4. Select the measure rest in voice 2 and hit 0 to enter a quarter rest in voice 2

Expected: The quarter rest is moved down to avoid collision
Actual: The quarter rest collides with the note

Workaround: Move the rest manually

This also affects imported 2.x scores. IMV, it's a bug.

Well, it was never designed to work, never worked in any previous release, so it's not a bug in the usual sense of the word. It's simply a feature that has never been implemented. Obviously, though, it's one people might reasonably expect to see, and it's a very good idea to implement some day, regardless of what one calls it. So, it's a high priority suggestion. Please don't change these fields.

If it had worked in a previous release it would be a regression. This is not a criteria for bug or not. For example the not selectable instrument names have been working in 2.x but are declared as designed in 3.0, not bug.

But the main feature of MS 3.0 is automatic placement of all sort of fancy staff. In this view a not working automatic placement of such a basic thing as a rest is a bug, IMO.

+1. This should be extended to imported 2.x scores as well.
