Multimeasure rests extending into other measures, through other parts of the score (MS3 Beta)

• Dec 13, 2018 - 13:10

See attached score and screenshots.

The piece starts with a multimeasure rest. of three measures, as can be seen in the tenor part:

When viewing the whole score, these multimeasure rests extend over the full breadth of the page, and even over several pages:

In the following screen shot, they extend into the page starting with measure 23:

However, when I drag a little further, they disappear. Note that this screenshot starts at measure 8, just like the previous one:

I cannot reproduce right now with the same revision: OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: f11685c

1) I open your score
2) Tenor part
3) Return to main score
4) Switch to Page View

Result: nothing particular (image below).
Is there other involved steps or in another sequence (I tried a few other, but no change)?

I can reproduce (image below). Maybe a shorter procedure, because this use case seems improbable.
Or something like that?

1) Your score, main score (and Continuous View)
2) Click first note C top staff -> Ctrl + L -> Press Space bar (or "_ " for enter melisma) until the end of the score
Note the initial mm rest (marked 3) continue to expand while you add space.
And so, when you:
3) Toggle to Page View
Result: the mm rest expands on four pages. And indeed, after Save/Close/Reload, the layout reverts as expected.
