[trunk] Rhythm notation for tablature can't be disabled

• Feb 3, 2011 - 22:36
S4 - Minor

I use the latest mscore code from the svn repo under mandriva 2010.2.

I have written a guitar part with a tablature.
I saved this score has a mscore compressed file.
When I reopen the score, the octave symbol above the clef has disappeared and all the note are drawn one octave lower.
Now, if I drag and drop the correct clef on the current clef, the tablature has suddenly rythme notation which I have previously removed.

I attached the mscore score and the pdf has it should be drawn.

The rhythm notation for the tablature staff is there as soon as I open the file. Drag and dropping the correct clef just moves the notes out of the way so they are no longer overlapping. I don't think current versions allow you to hide rhythm notation on tablature staves. How did you hide them the first time?

I selected a measure.
Then right click + click on "staff properties"
Then, I click on the first "Edit" button. (just on the right of the "tab" entry).
TThen, I click on "None" in the "Note values" section.

I tried today on the current trunk, and the problem of the rythm notation disappears.
I still have a problem with the clef on the guitar staff. It still miss the octave symbol when I reload the score (the little '8' below the G clef).


I can reproduce the problem with the clef not saving with the score you attached, but not with a new score.

Status (old) needs info fixed

As far as I can see this has been fixed in the current nightlies so I'm marking it as such.

Do feel free to restore the state to active if you disagree.
