Getting voices to share noteheads

• Apr 9, 2019 - 20:44

Is there a way to make two different voices (different values) share a notehead, as in the screenshot dottednote that I attached below? Notice how the bass voice is a dotted quarter and the tenor an eighth. MuseScore wants to give them separate notes, as in dottednote1. (The first shot comes from a book and the second from my MuseScore 3.0.5 document.) The dotted quarter is voice 2 and the eighth notes voice 1 in the bass clef.

Thank you! I followed your tip to use the Inspector. I moved the notehead, the stem, and the dot manually by using a negative X offset -- it worked but was tricky to get lined up perfectly. Then I looked at the file you posted. Clicking on the notes in question does not show any offset. Is there another, perhaps easier, way?
