No time signature, how to move note away from under the clef

• May 31, 2020 - 23:41

I have no time signature (I'm transcribing a work without one) and I want to get the note to move to the right of the clef (see pic)

Apparently, you deleted the time signature, and then automatic placement moved the first whole note underneath the tenor clef.
Check this out: click the first note and press up arrow a few times to raise the pitch. You'll see the note move away from the clef (instead of colliding with it).

To fix:
Put the 4/4 time signature back.
Right click the first measure -> Staff/Part Properties... and uncheck 'Show time signature'.

This is a bug we haven't quite prioritized enough to get fixed. The workaround I use to add an "atonal" key signature, this creates the necessary space.
