Copy/Paste problems causing crash
I have taken a copy of a score with the objective of adding a staff made up of sections from the various instruments to provide the melody. I then want to print the staff for the instrument I play with this 'melody' staff in 'cue note' format. I am having problems in creating this staff, however, causing crashing and have not found a solution to this problem.
When I copy and paste from one instrument to the melody staff I am careful to paste (usually mid-bar) to the position where the bar has the correct note duration content to match the time signature. However, MuseScore seems to add a rest making the note content exceed the limit and causing a crash. If I recover the file and delete the errant bar from the score with the aim of recreating it, the new bar suffers the same problem with possibly the value of 9 quavers in a 4/4 bar. The crash may not happen immediately but may happen after I have done 3 or 4 joins and the crash report identifies the 3 or 4 join bars as having too many notes. Screenshot attached.
I tried a different tack i.e. to leave the melody bars in their original staff and deleting the contents of all other bars. This, I thought, would give a less complex canvas to create the melody bar later. I didn't get that far, however, as the same problem reared its head again causing a crash. I gave up.
