5/8 notes

• Apr 18, 2010 - 22:08

I want to make 5/8 notes by connecting a minim to a quaver with a slur, but, when I do, both are played separately. Is there a way for me to do that so they'll be played together? Thanks.


I believe what you want is a "tie", not a slur.

The tie is invoked via the icon to the left of the quarter rest, or, as on my version, invoking the plus (+) sign.

Thank you very much. I said slur because I hovered the thing that looked like what I was looking for and it was a slur, but I was really looking for a tie!
I'm just starting to learn music notation, but not in English, so I get confused sometimes.
Thanks for your help!
