slurs and ties

• May 17, 2024 - 03:11

On MuseScore 4.3, when adding a slur and a tie from a note, the slur and tie are merged. The tie goes to the adjacent note, and the slur to the next note.


Normally I wouldn't add a slur "from a note". But rather range select the notes to be slurred the add the slur.

Deleting ties and notes all work as expected for me.

Are you experiencing this with one specific tie or all ties?

Please attach a score (.mscz file) that demonstrates the problem and say exactly which tie or note you cannot delete and also say how you are attempting to delete it - e.g. click on the tie, press the delete key.

I've seen this (well, sort of) once or twice. However, in both cases, it turned out that the "tie" was, in fact, just a display glitch. Moving the score--by even a pixel--made it go away.

I don't know that this is your problem, but it's worth a try. Move your score slightly or close the score and reopen. See what happens.

But if nothing changes, as Steve said, attach the score in question and give us details about exactly where the problem is and exactly what you've tried: e.g., "I clicked on this, then pressed that key, and then responded thusly to the dialog that appears.
