In 4/4 I have
1/4, dotted 1/4, 1/8 rest, 1/4
I would like the dotted 1/4 to be a 1/4 tied to an 1/8. If I change the 1/8 rest to an 1/8 note I get what I want (in line with 'notes starting on a beat ending in the middle of a beat). Why does this preference not apply if followed by the rest?
This is not an import of any kind.
Weird that I’ve not hit this before…
