I’m trying to remove some beats from the last bar of a flow.
When I do this, nothing happens. If I place the caret at the start of the bar, then the note gets deleted, but the total number of beats in the bar remains the same.
If I try in other bars, then I also get deleted notes, and the following notes move up to take their place (Insert is OFF), but again, no change to the number of beats in the bar.
I’ve tried -2q as well as -1h, and there’s no difference. Also, +2q adds a minim rest, but does not change the meter.
I’ve even read the help pages! And as far as I can see, I’m doing what it says, but not getting the result.
It specifically says “You can delete specific beats, … for example, to shorten the last bar in flows that start with pick-up bars.”
Of course, I can just change it to 2/4 and hide it, to get the result I want.
