Crescendo hairpin: "Height" and "Continue height" issues.

• Jul 28, 2015 - 10:10

(Win 7 HP. MuseScore 2.0.2 official). The attached score was originally imported as a MusicXML file.

(1) Click on the hairpin in the attached score. Under "Hairpin" (In the Inspector), "Height" and "Continue height" are greyed out for no apparent reason.

(2). However if you click on both of these fields and try to increase the values, something odd happens. You can see the value change momentarily, then it "flips" back to the original value. For some reason "Height" indication goes up to 1.3 but then advances no further.

However, despite the fact that the numerical value will not advance, the corresponding features of the hairpin visibly change!

If you deselect the hairpin and select it again, you see the changed value, even beyond the 1.3 and the fields are no longer greyed out. Looks like a bug that should get reported

Greyed out values in the Inspector generally mean the value is taken from a style setting and will therefore automatically change if the style setting changes. It has been suggested that this is not the best way to indicate that, but it is what it is.

The glitch with the numbers not changing seems to be a bug indeed. I rememebr others like this for other fields on other elements being fixed, can't remember if there was one one general basic cause.
