Compatibility of full-measure rests (0.9.6 regression)

• Mar 14, 2010 - 05:36
S2 - Critical

Steps to reproduce bug
1. Open the bach-bc2 demo
2. Go to measure 17 and observe the full-measure rests

Expected behavior: The full-measure rest should appear centered in the middle of the measure

Actual behavior: The full-measure rest appears left-aligned as if it was a whole-note (semi-breve) rests

Discussion: I'm not sure how these incompatible full-measure rests were created. I was unsuccessful at recreating the incompatible full-measure rests using 0.9.5 stable or 0.9.4 stable.

MuseScore version: r. 2883 nightly. Rest appears as full measure rest in 0.9.5 and 0.9.4 stable.

Actually measure 17 does not contain an full measure rest. Instead it has a normal rest. If you delete the rest it is replaced by a full measure rest.
Normal rests should not be replaced automatically by full measure rests when loading the score so i think this is not a bug.

Status (old) active closed

They appeared as full-measure rests in 0.9.5 and 0.9.4 so I assumed it was an incompatibility issue. I guess it was bug in those to versions displaying normal rests as full-measure rests.
