Why does 8va fill up entire measure when I only select the first half of notes?

• Jun 2, 2018 - 21:13

Does anyone know how to solve this problem? I select a group of notes in the measure and then drag the 8va sign for those notes, but the line covers the entire measure and I can't figure out how to resize the line. See attached photos


If you want it on a single note that is not the last note of the measure, then select the note you want it on and ctrl+click the next note before applying the 8va.
