System Text Offset Not Saved

• Nov 29, 2018 - 05:04

So noticed this because I was making a leadsheet and the text right on top of the staff so it wouldn't overlap with the chord symbols. I'm using version 2.3.2 on windows 10 version 1803 OS Build 17134.441.
To reproduce:
1) create a new score using lead sheet template
2) add system text to any rest/note
3) set vertical offset to 2.00sp
4) save, close and reopen
Vertical offset resets to 0.00sp

This is kinda specific, but I'm sure I've run into similar problems in the past with positions of text, dynamics, etc. not being saved. This is one I've been able to reproduce consistently. Let me know if you need anymore information.

Interesting, I can confirm with this score but can't I've ever noticed this before or heard it reported; I think it actually is specific to system text and the Jazz Lead Sheet template. Works fine for other templates or for other texts in Jazz Lead Sheet. Works fine in MuseScore 3 beta, though (specific controls are a bit different).

I suspect it has to do with system text really being staff text internally in MuseScore 2, and the jazz lead sheet template trying to force one to be above staff and the other below.
