8vb Treble clef on TAB staff — and — TAB clef on standard staff
I often work with a standard staff linked to a tablature staff. In the course of performing transformations and transpositions I regularly encounter situations where a standard treble clef or 8vb treble clef displays on the TAB staff.
This result is most simply recreated with the following steps:
- New score>Guitar + Tablature
- To change the 8bv clef to a standard treble clef:
a) click in Measure 1 of the standard staff
b) click the Treble Clef in the Clef palette
Odd result: In addition to changing the clef on the standard staff Musescore shows a Treble clef on the TAB staff.
a) click in Measure 1 of the tablature staff
b) Click the TAB clef in the Clef palette
Odd result: In addition to changing the clef on the TAB staff, Musescore shows a TAB clef on the standard staff. Thus the oddity is simply reversed.
Non obvious and successful workaround: Select either errant clef; press delete. The expected clef then displays.
NOTE: On saving the score with an errant clef the .mscx file contains the following structure:
<Clef> <concertClefType>G8vb</concertClefType> <transposingClefType>G8vb</transposingClefType> </Clef>
