• Jan 28, 2020 - 11:07

OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 20414b2

  1. Create a slur in the score.
  2. In the inspector change its colour to red
  3. Ctrl/Shift/drag the coloured slur to a pallet
  4. Select other notes in the score
  5. Click on the coloured slur in the pallet or drag it from the pallet to a note

Expected behaviour: a red slur is added to the score
Actual behaviour: a black slur is added to the score

If the slur is selected, its colour shown in the inspector is red not black.



I thought I remembered an issue about this but don't see it offhand. I suspect it wasn't about slurs or colors but about lines more generally, and maybe other properties. I'd encourage you to do a search yourself and if you don't find anything, submit it.

I know one problem with trying to implement anything like this is the fact that many line properties don't actually apply to the line itself but to the line segment - the portion of the line that happens to be displayed on the current system. Since lines can span multiple systems, and indeed segments get created and deleted all the time as layout changes, there's a kind of complicated framework for trying to keep things consistent, and it doesn't always work as one would hope. My guess is this is one such example.
