4/4 only has 7 eighth rests

• Mar 8, 2023 - 09:24

As I was working on my score, at a certain point 4/4 effectively became 7/8. I cannot fix this. I tried to readjust the time signature to no avail. I have tried to work around this issue by conforming to this apparent glitch, but it's just too confusing. Beyond a certain point, it resumed 4/4 with all the proper eighth rests. Please advise further.

Measure 32? See that little dash at its top right? It indicates the measure to have lest beats than the time sig asks for.
Right-click into it and adjust the actual duration to match the nominal duration

You may have deleted an eighth note or a rest by pressing Ctrl-Del. This not only deletes the note but also shortens the measure. Use 'Del' only.
