I decided take advantage of the generous 40%-off upgrades and have now moved from 10.5 to 11. Not before time: all the annoying little glitches in 10.5 have vanished (so I was right, ha!). But I think I might have found a new one…
The above pic shows the setup. I have shortened Ch2 (which you see in the lower panel) and want to extend the start of Ch3.4 up to it. But when I do ‘ghost notes’ appear in Ch3.4, as shown below:
These are the remnants of the shortened Ch2 event, as can be proved by deleting them:
They don’t sound but why can I see them?
Prior to all this, Ch2 ran all the way up to Ch3.4. It was still somewhat shortened but I hadn’t noticed any ‘ghosts’ in Ch3.4. Until I started investigating… When I re-extend Ch2 back to Ch3.4 suddenly ‘ghost’ notes appeared again but - and this the weird bit - only after I mouse-over! And then they stay. If I undo they still stay but when I mouse-over they disappear and stay disappeared. In contrast, the ‘ghosts’ in the above graphic seem permanent.
One other little detail: when I select the affected part the ‘ghost’ notes retain their unselected colour. Might be significant…
Weird or what?! It seems to be graphics-only but it’s very distracting and potentially confusing. I’m gonna keep racking my brains but in the meantime, any ideas anyone?
