Part extraction and ambitus

S2 - Critical

Simplified test case tested on the nightly build a65f06b
OS: linux mint 17.3 64 bit

Problem: I'm adding ambitus marks (early music feature) to the parts of a vocal score. When I set up separate parts the ambitus marks do not show up if >= 2 measure rests follow immediately after the ambitus mark.

Yes, most likely. But then that is a bug. The ambitus mark should display regardless of any number of measure rests.

Actually there is another bug with ambitus marks, which I haven't reflected in the test case: if a part is transposed, for example an octave up while the full score is kept in concert pitch, then the ambitus isn't correctly displayed in the separate part. See the attached revision of my test case

NB. I insert the ambitus mark into the full score with the 'concert pitch' property checked.

Current nightly even crashes on opening these tets files, and does not allow to add an Ambitus at all.
