Beam connects too many notes

• Aug 5, 2014 - 02:55


I've noticed that sometimes, when MuseScore crashes and I re-open a piece I was working on, some beams which normally connect groups of four 16th notes, for example, randomly connects all sixteen 16th notes, or sometimes twelve. Is there any way to fix this?

(At least I think it happens when MuseScore crashes - while I'm composing, it never does anything that weird)

Hopefully that's enough information - I can't think of a great way to explain it.

Thanks in advance!


They say a picture is worth ia thousand words, but actually, what's *really* more useful if you post the score itself. Otherwise we'd just be guessing.

I've never seen this type of corruption before. Somehow I guess the beam properties are mssed up, even though going through those measures note by noe with the Beam Properties palette open doesn't show anything wrong. But it does suggest a simple fix: select the problem measures, double click the "No beam" icon to break all the beams, then double click the "A" to restore automatic beaming.
