Instrument names with flats do not resize with score (0.9.5 regression)

• Mar 15, 2010 - 04:31
S4 - Minor

Steps to reproduce bug
1. Create new score for Flute and Bb Clarinet
2. Layout > Page Settings
3. Make the Scaling much smaller

Expected behavior: All instrument names should resize with the rest of the staff

Actual behavior: Instrument names with flats signs do not resize

No workaround except editing the mscx file by hand (manually resizing via double-click edit turns the flat into a square)

MuseScore version: r. 2883. Bug also present in 0.9.5

(Operating System: Windows 7)


I also noticed that I cannot double-click and edit the instrument name, which is very irritating. In the last version, I could drag the name around (usually done by accident), and I could certainly double-click and edit the name of the instrument/size it down.

See the release notes, and about a hundred existing threads on the latter topic. Instrument name is now edited via staff properties, since that is where the name is generated from in the first place. However, sizing and positioning needs to be done In the appropriate text style.
