Cannot see 8th note ledger lines

• Oct 14, 2009 - 01:10

My system:
-Ubuntu 9.04
-MuseScore 0.9.5

The bug: when you create repeating 8th notes with ledger lines, you can not see the ledger lines unless you stretch the measure more that its default stretch.

To reproduce:
1. Create a new score
2. Create a bunch of 8th notes alternating between middle C and the A below on the treble clef.
3. You will not see ledger lines on the C's unless you stretch the measure. Zoom in as much as you want but they will not be there.

Also, see the attached screenshot.

This issue may not be worth worrying about, I have discovered. The steps posted above may only work when, for some reason, the default measure stretch is very scrunched. I discovered this originally when I was in the beginning of writing out a piece, which had a lot of empty measures, later to be filled. But empty measure do seem to be scrunched until they are filled, and they tend to scrunch the rest of the piece too, thus leaving little room for ledger lines. Anyhow, if this is encountered, then it should be able to be fixed by stretching the measure more.

Fixed in r3645: ledger lines were shortened but obviously too much.
Minimum distance is now set to 0.17 Space.

Re-opening because 16th notes and below have problems.

Chen lung what version and revision number of MuseScore are you using? From the main menu choose Help > About to find out.

It was only in the trunk so you don't see the effect in 1.0pre1. Backported for 1.0 in r3892

restoring original title (to match initial bug report)

Looks good! :D

Sorry to nag - I think maybe the space between the notes should be a bit more wider to allow for slightly longer lines (they still seem a little short)?
