MuseScore 4 enable count-in option not visible; count-in tempo is off

• Feb 2, 2023 - 16:22

In the MuseScore 4 online manual, it says that you can enable metronome count-in under Playback Settings. But the menu item in question does not appear on MuseScore on my computer (see image).
Manual link:…

Also, when I manually add a blank measure to the score, the tempo is not played as set, but changes to the set tempo only at the start of the first original measure. When I set the tempo to crotchet = 72 (also in the score, and save it), the metronome counts in at crotchet = 90 and then changes automatically to crotchet = 72 when it hits the first original measure. In MuseScore 3, count-in actually works, but the count-in tempo is wrong there too, in a similar fashion.
