Playback not registering ties

• Feb 12, 2023 - 13:54

Using Musescore 4.0.1.
The playback will always ignore ties and play a note even if it is tied. Have tried restarting, reinstalling, etc. Happens in all scores in all cases. Properties tab knows it is a tie and not a slur.

Same for me now too. Here is what I originally did.
I created tied notes in measure 30. That tie worked. The one in 107 still did not. So I figured that something in between 30and 107 was the problem. So I started adding ties in measures 56, 89 94, and 97. Each time, the added ties worked but the one in 107 did not. I removed the dynamic in 102 and some other things that I don't remember for sure. Same result. Then I removed the a tempo and the 107 tie worked. I undid the removal and the tie did not work. I removed the a tempo again, and the tie worked.
So I must have done something else because just removing it now, indeed, does not work.

I think the point is that ties DO work in this score. But because it in an import from something else, there is something causing problems.

I was having problems with ties when playback, then I realized that I should use the S shortcut for Slur, when the notes are different, but I should use the shortcut T for ties, this is when the notes are the same.
This is also applies to chords. That solve my playback issues.

Yes, slurs and ties are different things that look similar (but not identical). It is important to use the correct one for the intended effect. A slur covering notes of the same pitch can be useful sometimes; to indicate a soft rearticulation of a note for example. However I don't think Musescore's playback handles such subtleties.
