Missing note from Tuplet group

Hello, I am attempting to engrave a sextuplet group that has 3 16th notes, and 6 32nd notes, as shown here :https://imgur.com/g14i9Vr However, when I use simple entry and the alt-9 tuplet tool, six 16ths in the space of 4, then try to click in the 32nd notes, I am unable to enter the final 32nd note...

Playback gets quieter with each tab slide "to nowhere"

Pretty much what the title says. When I use a tab slide to indicate a fall, (not connecting the slide to the adjacent notehead), the playback for that instrument gets quieter. After a couple bars of multiple tab slides like this, the playback drops to nothing. I have found that connecting the tab sl...

Re: Uniform Chord Baseline (distance from top of staff)

Thanks for the replies. Sorry for being unclear. I am using the leftmost triangle. That tip about the offset in the status bar is a good one, though thank you. I will be using that. Doesn't appear to respond to the arrow keys though. If using the mouse is the only way, I anticipate a little bit of f...

Uniform Chord Baseline (distance from top of staff)

Hello, I have been looking for a way to make the distance of a chord symbol from the top of a staff the same throughout the document without using the fourth arrow to click and drag them. This works well within one document, but it proves challenging to get uniformity across different documents. I h...

Hello, Is there a way to quickly duplicate the staff attributes from one staff to another? For example, I've got everything set up exactly the way I want it for a 5-line banjo tab and want to transfer over all of those settings I've tweaked into a 6-line guitar tab. When I change the instrument in t...

Re: Automatic slur placement underneath tab 'notehead'

Beautiful! Thank you so much. One last question if you please.. I have opted to use the smartshape tool for hammer-on, pull-off and slide, since there is a metatool there which will increase workflow. I know how to highlight multiple smartshapes and right click to horizontally align them. Is there a...

Re: Automatic slur placement underneath tab 'notehead'

Thanks Zuill, with your help I was able to get these tab slides to look much nicer. I think that the ties would work better if I could get them to not truncate when I add the other note. In this example you see when the other note is added the tie shrinks? Is there a workaround for that? https://img...

Re: Change Stem Length

Sorry for being unclear, I am actually using the custom line tool under the smartshape tool, but I see you can use it under various tools. I see now the expression tool has the four little arrows that can move all expressions in chunks. It looks like that's the best bet since I'm already using the L...

Thanks for your replies. Too bad the slurs can't be made to be going up on default, but no worries.

12/8 default rests

Hello is there a way to change the default rests (the way the measure fills out after you move to the next one) to be dotted quarters in 12/8? Right now mine constantly revert back to quarter and eighth rests, and it is a real pain to have to go in and change them all manually.

Thanks!

Re: Half Notes in Tabulature

It's not really that it won't work necessarily, but when you're tabbing out Scruggs style or melodic style banjo, the standard notation won't give you enough information about where to play the notes. You could have a lot of options, comparing single-string style to melodic style. And standard notat...

Re: Half Notes in Tabulature

Thanks for the solution!

And it is banjo tabulature, so standard notation won't really help very much in this situation.
