(MS4) Incorrect Dot Placement When Voices Cross and Stem Directions are Flipped

• Feb 28, 2023 - 22:59

In MuseScore 4, when placing dotted quarter notes in two different voices with their stems flipped, the dots are placed so that all dotted quarter notes have their dots in the same place, which makes it appear as though only one note is dotted.

Steps to replicate:

  1. Place a dotted note in voice 1.
  2. Place a dotted note in voice 2, above the previous dotted note, no more than a third above the other note. Placing the note in unison with the other note will also result in an unusual dot placement.
  3. Change the stem direction of both notes, so that voice 2's stem is up and voice 1's stem is down.

This appears to happen for any duration of dotted note.
