Tremolo bar property preset behaves as bend

1) score with tablature staff
2) add a note
3) add a tremolo bar marking from articulations palette (last cell)
4) right click the marking
5) tremolo bar properties
6) press the buttons on the right

Result: these appear to be the presets for Bend notation. "Dip" should be created the "V" shape but instead creates a full fret bend, etc. The initially displayed shape is also incorrect, it seems to be displaced vertical and truncated.


I can confirm Marc's observations re: the preset buttons. The default display appears wrong with the V of the dip heading downwards off the display. Isn't the thick black line the "resting position", in which case the default dip should start and end there.

(IMV, the symbol needs to be larger. See Vibrato Bar notation ).

This issue is also present in the current 2.1 nightly. When you open the Tremelo bar properties dialogue, the default V-shaped line is wrongly positioned in the display.


A reasonable default position could be to have the start and end points at "zero" (the dark horizonatal line?) and the mid point perhaps a semitone or tone below?
