How do I edit the length of an mmrest?

• Jan 10, 2019 - 20:29

Not sure if bug, really. I select the mmrest measure, measure properties is grayed out. I select the rest object itself, there is no property for size, or specifically length. I go to Format -> Stretch -> increase and it does... something but barely a twitch of something. I swear it's increasing by a fraction of a millimeter every time.

Any solutions?


Should be much more than a fraction of a millimeter - for me, it increases by about the same ratio as any other measure. Can you attach a score demonstrating the problem?

I can confirm it for that score. Not sure what's going on. I copied and pasted the first system of the flute part into a new empty score and saw the same thing. I guess it has to do with the ratio of content between the empty and non-empty measures? I'm filing it as an issue... #281651: Stretch having miniscule affect on mmrests

My best guess is that it has to do with how dense the rest of that line is, although that doesn't really make sense.
