Multi-measure rests not working

• Apr 23, 2024 - 02:06

I am very confused because the multi-measure rests work in some measures but not in others, even though the measures are empty throughout the section. I checked the measure properties and ensured the 'break mult measure rest' box was unticked, Can someone please help me figure out what's wrong?

There are two points here:

  • You're talking about the case where you enable multimeasure rests from the main score and after ticking off the visibility of such and such instruments.
    Then you're right, there's something unexpected.
    With V3 (eg Trumpet 2), you get :

    With V4:
    trompette V4.jpg

We'd have to understand what's triggering this inconsistency before reporting it on GitHub

  • Second point : why don't you create parts (from the Parts tab, in the middle of the toolbar) ? See: :
    This is done in two clicks (instead wasting your time to hide instruments), and it's the basic and powerful feature for can extract instruments parts.

And then the result is as expected. See image below:
(and your score with parts: Watermelon Man1.mscz)

Apart from the original question, which has already been well answered by cadiz1, I wonder why your score has the same key signature for all instruments, transposing and non-transposing?

I'm not very experienced in music theory though, but in my opinion trumpet, piano, saxophone should be notated in different keys - unless you switch to concert pitch mode.

Maybe I have a gap in my knowledge and you can briefly explain why it should be like this?

If the OP is hiding and showing instruments on the main score rather than using Parts, then the same key signature will have been applied to all staves and will show as same or different depending upon whether Concert pitch is ticked. The lack on instrument names in the original post;s images suggests that we are not looking at Parts but at a score with staves hidden.

I just opened the "Watermelon Man.mscz" in MuS 3.7 and saw that all instruments show Fmaj even though the concert pitch button was not pressed. Only the guitar was hidden.
And at least in MuS 3, the key does not change if I hide all but one instrument in the main score - in the notated key. Is it different in MuS 4? And what key do you see when you show different transposing and non-transposing instruments together? For example, alto saxophone, trumpet, piano?

And when I press the concert pitch button, all instruments should display the same key, but that's not the case here. That was the reason for my comment. And I don't think that's right. But if it is, I would like to know why.
