Adding a Note on tied notes automatically ties the new note across the exisiting tied notes

• Jun 11, 2024 - 18:48

I guess this is expected behaviour, but as I didn't notice this before I wanted to ask if my Settings have changed and if this can be toggled on and off?

I had 4 eigths tied together. When I then added another eigth above the first note I was getting 4 notes added straight away, tied together.

I also like this feature but got a little confused and because of that wanted to ask if there is an easy way to turn this on/off, so I can use it when needed?

Thanks for any help :)

I added the additional note before tying the eighths, and it worked the way you wanted.

Am I out of line to ask why you have the tied eighths like that?

You're right this isn't quite usual and in this specific case where I encountered it today I was just testing and trying out stuff.

Thinking about it I can't even remember when I used this in a real score (appearently not since MS4 :) ), I just got surprised as I rembembered the behaviour differently from MS3

My impression (I'm very much not sure of this) is that I've seen the same thing, even in MuS 2 and 3. When I've needed one note of a chord (rather than the entire chord) tied to the next note I always enter the two "chords" (in MuS's sense, rather than a strict music theoretical sense) separately and then tie the one note explicitly. I've been doing this for a long time, so my impression is that I've seen this behavior for a long time.
