I’m just wondering what keyboard shortcut (arrow key?) to press to move the selection from the f-natural (which is in Up-Stem Voice 1) to the minim rest just beneath it (which is Down-Stem Voice 1)?
I’m not finding any key combination that will do this.
Thanks, but pressing V (in this situation) turns the f-natural into Down-Stem Voice 1, which is not what I want. I’m happy to keep it as Up-Stem Voice 1. But I’d like to select (just select) that rest underneath it (with the keyboard… obviously with the mouse there’s no problem).
(Yes, I’m on 4.2.)
It’s not just that it’s not intuitive. It feels like a fluke. In this case the music voicing was such that this worked, but that’s not always going to be the case. There’s not always going to be a path to the second voice in this way (and anyway, finding that path is like working through a maze! … unless there’s some logic here that I’m missing.)
Seems like a bug rather than a feature.
Reaching for the mouse all the time slows things down a lot.
It’s a fair question. I think in that case I probably wanted to delete or hide the rest, so your suggestions would work. But the same problem exists even if it’s a question of selecting a note, not a rest.
For instance, in the following example there’s no simple way of selecting the lower e (which is Down-Stem Voice 1) if, as in the screenshot, the rest (Up-Stem V1) is selected.
In that case there are plenty of reasons why I’d want to select the e, such as changing its pitch.
Yes, that works.
Still, I think the behaviour is counterintuitive! Clearly a single Down keypress should select the note directly below the one currently selected, regardless of which inner voice it happens to be.
