In linked staves, the return to a nominal measure duration, if it corresponds to two beats (half-rest) leads to corruption
Version 3.6.2 / Windows 10
- New score for an instrument with linked staves, eg template Guitar + Tablature, default 4/4 time signature
- Create a pick-up measure (or irregular measure within the score), with a 2/4 actual measure duration, in Measure properties
You are here: test duration 4.4.mscz
- Now, return in Measure properties, and set again the 4/4 time signature as Actual duration
Result: corruption (expected: 4/4, found 6/4)
Here : test save-reload 4.4.mscz
For fixing, create a full measure rest (Ctrl + Shift + Del)
- Depending my understanding, and the few tests done, this only happens if the creation of a second half-rest should happen (at step #4) and it doesn't - or, in a wrong way.
For example, if we do 3/4 (pick-up measure), then 4/4 (step #4), it happens normally, because the last quarter rest is created (images below ) before saving.
But not with a 2/4 then 4/4
The change seems fine :
But not, after save-reload:
