longa not counted correctly?

• Jul 2, 2020 - 09:44

Hi, I obtained the the score shown when attempting to dot the longa above the "ve." of the last "ave" in the bass line: it produced a double longa which in addition makes the note too long for the 4/1 time, since the first of the two longas already covers half of the last measure (as in lines 2 and 3 above). And if I convert the last longa to a double whole, it inserts a doube hole pause at the end. Thus it seems that the first longa only counts as a double whole, while marked as longa.

Any ideas? I saw that displaying note values across measure boundaries is experimental - is this a little bug or am I missing something?
