OS: Windows 10 (10.0), Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit): 3.5.0.13199, revision: 43c5553

This was fixed in #305069: Chord symbols attached to fret diagrams don't play back. But there still seems to be a residual problem.

  1. Create a blank treble staff score.
  2. Add a fretboard diagram to the first measure rest, say.
  3. Press Play.
    Result: No sound.
  4. Add a chord symbol to the next measure, then press Play.
    Result The chord/fretboard symbol plays back OK.

Alternatively, after step 3, save and reload the score. The chord/fretboard symbol now plays back OK.


Comments

Indeed, it appears the mere act of adding a fretboard diagram does not trigger generation of the chord symbol playback info. Once you add another chord symbol, they then all play.
