Trying to move a note to the end of measure; cut/paste/delete not working

• Apr 11, 2019 - 00:02

I have a measure, right? Rest, four eighth notes, another rest. Common time. 4 beats per measure.
I am trying to get it so that there's the four eight notes, and then two rests.
NOTHING is working. I'm ripping my hair out. This should be a simple fix. One forum said to do cut and paste. But absolutely nothing happens to this godforsaken rest when I click "cut" or "delete". If I try to turn the first quarter rest into a half rest, then it deletes the first two eighth notes. When I try to turn the last rest into a half rest, nothing happens. When I try to just move the notes around on the staff, nothing happens. What the heck. What do I do. This is so frustrating. I can't understand why nothing I do is working. This should be simple.


The most simple thing to do is to just enter the notes and rests you want in the measure.

Click the start of the measure, press n to enter note input mode then 4 and then the four note names, then press 5 0 0 to enter two quarter rests (or 6 0 for a half rest).

If this doesn't work, you need to tell us what happens when you do this.
