Musescore crashes when I press 'x' on the beam of a tuplet

• Aug 18, 2020 - 11:18

In a 6/8 bar I have put a tuplet of 26 semiquavers in the left hand which fills the duration of the bar. All the notes are beamed, but when I pressed 'x' to invert the beam and stems to be downwards rather than upwards, Musescore crashed and says it quit unexpectedly. I have attached an image of that tuplet.

Can this be fixed?

Many thanks,

From James

I'm just trying to analyze the problem. Check where it started to happen and what is needed to make it happen.
Next step is to fire up MuseScore in a debugger...

OK, stack trace:

Thanks so much! It works now (I can press 'x' without a crash), and when I tried using the 'Beam start' in other scores I selected a group of notes that I wanted to beam separately (which didn't work), but now I have just realised I need to only select the first note. This is going to help a lot with other scores.
