Score is an xml from sib. I have a tremolo in 3/4 in the flute which in the original displayed correctly. I had to rewrite it is D3 and kept having a problem with the first quarter tying to an eighth note, even though I hit the O key and dot key first. Anyway when I tried to make the first note a dotted quarter the bar would change to the correct rhythm but the dot wouldn’t show, so it ended up looking like a bar of 5/8. Tried adding a bar before and re-enter the note values but the same thing happened, the rhythm dot was not showing. Maybe the pics will explain it better.
The before pic shows that I have enough beats in the bar, the after pic. shows what I end up with when I try to add a dot.
