MS 3.0.1 Caesura following fermata.

• Jan 17, 2019 - 00:10

I'm not sure if this is a known bug or not, or if this is a result of importing a score created in 2.3.2.
In the attached score, the caesura in m 47 does not function. According to the inspector, it is set to pause for two seconds, but there is no break whatsoever. The break is intended to leave space for dialogue and to soften the somewhat jarring key change. Also, the breath mark in m 57 doesn't work either. (I believe others have discussed this particular issue elsewhere.) I've tried deleting the markings and re-entering them, but they are still ignored.

MS 3.0.1 Win 10

On the bright side, I haven't had a crash since installing the 3.0.1 update.

Apparently not related to the fermata, as the causura 2sec pause doesn't even happen when having deteleted the fermatats. That mich is a known issue, see #281909: Caesuras and sections breaks don't cause pauses in playback
See also #280506: Fermata followed by Breath mark in certain settings causes crash, you don't seem to experience this in 3.0.1 anmymore?
BTW, these fermatas have different time streche settings in the different parts (1, i.e no strecht, vs, 2, i.e double) , that'll lead to trouble anyhow

Thanks, Jojo. I see the different length fermatas. (fermatae?) That is pure carelessness on my part. I'm not sure if that is the cause of the issue, though.
As for crashes, it's early going with 3.0.1, but so far I have not experienced a single crash. I am much more confident that I can do the work I want with the new version.
