Ledger lines

• Apr 12, 2015 - 08:07

I find myself unable to produce the shown scenario (which is quite common in guitar notation) in the first picture without cheating. When adding a third voice to give the first note a downward quarter note stem, the ledger lines are incorrectly placed (see second picture). Trying to correct this with chord offsets etc. seems to make thing even worse.

Thanks for your reply!

What version of MuseScore? Is d576c45 some nightly build?

This attachment was done in MuseScore 2.0.
Looks ok to me, although seeing more of the score would be better - it lacks context regarding voices.

Without seeing more of the piece I can't say whether the eighth-note rest is strictly need or not but if you want things to appear this way you can create the eighth notes in Voice 1, the Quarter-note in Voice 2 and the rest in Voice 3 and then hide unwanted rests as necessary.
