Open the attached score.

  1. Click on the first note in voice 1 of measure 4.
  2. Add a Natural accidental from the toolbar.
    Expected result: Space from barline to note stays the same?
    Actual result: The note moves closer to the barline. This seems to happen when there is a fingering symbol in a different voice at the same position.

Title Accidental reduces barline to note distance if there is a fingering in another voice LH Guitar Fingering creates too much space before barline
Severity S3 - Major S4 - Minor
Priority P2 - Medium

Accidentals are supposed to change the distance to first note; there are separate style settings for this. But it's not implemented as consistently as it should be, and it's true that content in other voices or others staves can confuse things. The behavior in this case seems correct as far as what happens with the accidental - it's correctly honoring the barline to accidental distance. The issue is the note is too far away with the fingering. We really could ignore it since it's below the staff and thus doesn't collide with the barline, except it still will if barlines were extended to a staff below. But maybe we treat notes with fingering as if they had accidentals and use the smaller distance in that case.
