Rest Problem in 6/8 Timing

• Nov 17, 2019 - 04:43

When trying to create a score with a local time signature of 6/8 (after the main part in 4/4 timing), if I try to fill each measure with two dotted quarter notes I get a series of small erroneous rests at the end of the measure. Why? If the second dotted quarter note is represented as a quarter note (or two eighths) tied to an eighth note there is no problem. What's going on?

I don't thin this is a local time signature. A local time signature is one you apply to a single staff. I believe you simply have a time signature change. Can you attach the score. I think this was a problem early in 3.0 development (maybe 3.0.1 or 3.0.2) but it was fixed.

In the state the score is in now there is no corruption (bogus rest count) as shown in your picture so I'm not sure what happened. There have been spurious reports of corruptions and some we know the causes of, but we need to see the actual corrupt score to be able to find the cause. I don't see any of the known triggers in your score. Corruptions are considered major issues and are given a high priority to fix.

It is quite easy to reproduce this bug from a blank score, and it is indeed tied to local time signatures. But there is no reason that I can see to use local time signatures in this case, since the same time signature was applied to each staff at the same place. However, if you had not used local time signatures, you never would have stumbled across this bug.
