Slash chord without full appearance

• Oct 25, 2014 - 19:57

In a book I have, the top part of a slash chord does not appear if it is repeated (not sure if it's called anything).

Is there intended support for this? I think it's a better use of space, and also for sight-reading.

1. Open attached mscz (produced in 2.0 beta 1).

Expected result:

Actual result: Chords beginning with a slash don't appear after saving and re-opening.

The problem also appears in a new nightly score.
There's no issue in a 1.3 score with this type of chord.


2. 'File'>'Export…'.
3. Choose 'MusicXML'.
4. 'Save'.
5. Open MusicXML.

Result: The slashes after the chord don't appear.

Note: The produced MusicXML is attached.

Supporting that would be a good idea, I agree. I actually thought I implemented it at one point but apparently not (or maybe repelled then broke). Feel free to file an issue. BTW, this did *not* actually work in 1.3; chords entered that way were treated plain text, not true chord symbols.
