Musescore randomly changed my time signature for one measure and I have no idea how to fix it.

• May 27, 2020 - 02:34

I don't know what I did but I was working on a piece in 4/4 time and one measure is for some reason in 5/5 time. Like if I clear everything so that it only shows rests, all the other measure have a whole rest and this measure has a whole rest and a quarter rest. Is there a good way to fix this? Thanks in advance.


It could be you accidentally inserted a beat using Ctrl+Shift+letter or by changing to Insert mode, or it could be the score has become corrupt. If you right-click the measure and choose Measure Properties, what does "Actual duration" report? If it says 5/4, just change it back to 4/4. If it says 4/4, see for some suggestions on fixing it. If you'd like further assistance, we would need you to attach the actual score, or at least a relevant excerpt.
