Once again, there is no inconsistency here. It doesn't have to be the 4th voice, of course; that just seemed the most logical, assuming someone might need the other voices for notes. I clicked on Set Invisible and nothing happened to the green rest. If you need any more info I'm available most of the time, just email me at stackhouseza eastnoble. If you would like to do the repeat measure sign go to 'Repeats and Jumps' located under 'Palette' and click the arrow.
Once you realize that editing a measure is filling out a finite span of time, and that you're basically replacing rests with notes, it becomes a lot easier to move ahead. Now you can delete whatever is in beat 2 and turn it into rests. I also wonder which actually saves more effort in the long run - allowing less mouse movement for duration change, or allowing easier rest input? The way note input works in MuseScore you don't delete notes or rests per say. In note entry mode select the note duration and click on the staff to replace whatever is there. I suspect the actual reason things are the way they are isn't laziness; it's compatibility with Sibelius, which has generally recognized as the easiest to use of the major notation packages my students tell me that MuseScore now beats it handily, though.
Describe exactly what you find complex, and how you would make it simpler. And why would a file be corrupted, and by what? Try and make it flow with what's come before. Sort of where users thoroughly explain what they want, and then the developers say whether or not that is possible, and potential conflictions and issues that could arise with what is being proposed. Probably mine is as well. I'm assuming the half rest will be automated for me, but the hard part is actually telling musescore to insert a quarter rest at the beginning.
This program, as you call it, will then be better. Although it doesn't actually work this way now in master - it pops up the same context menu you'd get while in normal mode, and it also enters a note simultaneously, which is just plain bad. The resonance was quite positive but it was never purused further. The word insert implies moving things, so I hope you see the complication your wording brings. Once gone the note position is now empty, and I don't know how to get it back.
You want to have a quarter rest at the end of the measure. I cannot seem to replace a rest with a note, though if I delete a note I get a rest. I think you may have added a pick up measure? Multimeasure rest A Multimeasure rest indicates a period of silence for an instrument: the number of measures is shown by the number above the staff. A modern program should concider the expectiations of the user in order to get a good acceptance. You can add from a wide range of instruments and place them on either the treble or bass clef.
Another thing I don't like is that I have to go to the the toolbar to enable or disable the input mode. I clearly experienced that I could not cut the rest. It will be a lot better though when they don't get inserted right underneath the other notes. So I've written the first three bars. What you described is an example of something overly complicated. If you untick Show Invisible in the Display Menu they should disappear as soon as you make them invisible. I'm not sure I understand the distinction you are making here.
If you want to insert a rest, because you didn't enter it in the first place, you can select the range you want to shift click on the first note, shift click on the last note and copy it, select the point you want to shift it and paste. I did not want to shift any notes. So, I'm pretty new to Musescore, and finding my way around using the tutorial videos and the handbook. I will admit, though, that I would still find a feature like this useful. All notes and rests in a measure have to sum to the time signature.
It's extra time and trouble to either move or erase those rests, especially since often I have to go into 200% and 400%, and like I said, the zoom never puts you where you are working, so that's even more fishing around. Works for the equivalent right-click gesture two-finger tap on my Windows touchpad system, I would hope same would be true for Mac although obviously that would need to be tested. I would encourage you to try to get more feedback on the thread I started. I am I interested in implementing an easier workflow, not a harder one. In note entry mode select the note duration and click on the staff to replace whatever is there. Even better, the code is , compile it, make a patch to suit your requirements, and submit it here.
Often there is the situation where I need to correct the last input e. Almost always in this program, the rests from other voices interfere with the visibility of the notes. Well, something is clearly wrong - either you are using one a file that won't let you hide the rests, or you are doing something wrong. I am not suggesting while clicking the mouse, I am talking about pressing 0 instead of clicking the mouse. This will shorten your note and insert the quarter rest at the end of the measure. These are all pretty standard Windows shortcuts; I imagine it works similarly on Mac or Linux. It would be wrong to say that just because there is already one efficent way to use the program all the other modes to use it can be neglected.
