Tab input via keyboard in non-standard tuning (bug?)
Musescore 2.1.0 AppImage downloaded a few minutes ago, Linux Mint 17.1, 32-bit
Tablature input via keyboard does not work as intended, I am unable to enter "a" or "b" on the lowest string.
I am transcribing "lyra-way" music for viol, and have just started working on pieces where the viol tuning is non-standard. In this case, the two lowest strings are tuned a fifth apart (kind of like drop D tuning a guitar).
I have edited the string data in staff properties to reflect this. (I started from scratch with a completely new score, with no "parts" involved at all, as I know these can cause mischief, and I edited the staff properties before I did any music entry at all, because this has caused me mischief on previous occasions.)
So, yesterday, note entry via the keyboard was working as expected, and today it has reverted to a familiar problem. I am unable to enter "a" or "b" on the lowest string. Whichever letter I key in, Musescore translates two letters up. (If I key "a", a "c" appears, if I key "d", an "f" appears, and so on.)
It is as though Musescore is reading each letter I type as the note it would have been on a standard-tuned instrument, if that makes sense.
Anyway, I am attaching a file for anyone who cares to to experiment with.
Open the file, go to note input, move the input cursor to the lowest string, key the letter "a" and tell me what happens! (On all other strings, behaviour is as expected.)
Again; I swear on my mother's grave that yesterday this worked, and today it doesn't
Thanks in advance.
