Errors in Measure count in status bar

• Aug 13, 2019 - 09:02

When I exclude measure{s) from the count, the measure count shown in Status Bar shows all measures counted.

Therefore - measure count in the score does not agree with measure count shown in the status bar.


The status bar always shows the absolute and internal measure number.
There is a PR pending to also show the relative measure number, if it is different

Consider section breaks:

A section can have its own measure numbering independent of the rest of the score.
So theoretically a score can have measures with the same number.

Suppose a score consisted of 20 exercises, each exercise consisting of 12 measures. Section breaks are added between exercises so that each exercise will have its measures numbered 1 - 12 on the score.

Measure #6 will appear in 20 different places in such a score, which is why the status bar assigns every measure a unique and consecutive number. It is accurate, and not approximate at all.

The idea of the pending PR is to add the section number or modified measure number to the status bar. In any case, if you use ctrl+f (the find function) you will need to look for the internal measure number not the modified measure number to get to a certain point in the score. The internal measure number is guaranteed to be unique, while you can have multiple measures with the same printed number on it. As a user the internal number is important.
