Rests can be moved to the left of the barline
P2 - Medium
S4 - Minor
- Create a measure with two voices, like this:
- Select the rest and use the left arrow key to move it backwards.
Expected result: AP engages to maintain the same distance from the barline.
Actual result: The rest behaves as if autoplacement were off. The score only updates after a re-layout.
Autoplace has nothing to do with this, but it is true that the basic layout does currently appear to allow you to move a rest across a barline. It's worth considering whether maybe it should allow rests (and notes) to cross barlines, but if it should, then the fact that it doesn't survive relayout would be a major bug.
