Yes, if the top staff is at the top of the screen. But, if you are working down in the string section, you may not see the signpost.
Interesting though, if you just delete the bar line, the view will move to the top and you see the sign post.
But, if you delete the bar and an adjacent note (or slur, dynamic, etc…) too, the view doesn’t move to the top, and you don’t catch the signpost.
And, if the bar is at the extreme left or right, you won’t notice the adjacent measure is messed up when the system redraws.
I suspect this is what happened to the OP.
BTW, it is easy to do this when you are proofing the sound. Check this workflow :
- Highlight a bar
- Hit P for playback
- Hear a note you don’t like, hit P to stop
- ctrl-click on the bad note (ctrl was an accident here)
- hit delete.
uh-oh. your next keystroke will be ctrl-Z !
