Time Signature is displayed twice and crashes program if one is deleted

• Jan 4, 2019 - 15:04
Reported version
P0 - Critical
S3 - Major

Issue 1: In the attached score, if you attempt to insert or delete a measure in the 4/4 bar directly following the 2/4 bar, the program crashes.

Issue 2: In the 4/4 bar, if you make a change and save said change, the time signature (4/4) will display twice, but nothing happens to the 4/4 in front if you try to delete it. However, if you try to delete the second 4/4, the program will crash. The score will reload without the duplicate, but it will reoccur.

I fixed the second issue somehow. Unfortunately I didn't record the steps I took because I didn't think it was going to do anything but it amounted to dragging the first 4/4 to a different place, saving the score, closing it, then reloading it. This resulted in there being one 4/4 but with a space in front of it, so I just cut the notes in the measure and re-pasted them. The second issue seems to be fixed, and I assume the first will be in a later update or something. The first issue isn't a horrendous setback although it is a bit annoying, so I've reduced the severity. Thanks for the help :)

EDIT: Second issue occurred again and this time i couldn't fix it. It seems to happen if i make a change in a bar before a time signature change, then save the score. (EDIT again: for me, the 4/4 only doubles up if the time sig preceding it has a 6 in it (6/4, 6/8), and 12/8 seems to double itself rather than the 4/4. Very confusing.)

Can you reproduce the crash if, before deleting a time signature, you remove, first, the clef change (first issue)?
