The bugs: When entering a note in notation mode, sometimes the right click places it on the staff, sometimes you have to use only the left-click (PITA) menu. In any event (pun intended), if the note entry is on the downbeat of the very first beat (first gridline), it usually does not display in edit mode. In other words, note entry is not consistent. Things get even worse in Piano Roll.

Shrugs: "Snap to Beat?" It used to be obvious but obviously not any more. In "Snap to Beat" mode I can place the vertical edit/timeline anywhere in between a beat and not always on the beat. Maybe the button is just not named/highlighted correctly.

Hello Paj,

When you enter Editable Notation mode, are you able to see the vertical dotted lines denoting the beat resolution? The beats will be set in groups of whatever your current beat resolution is set to, but the first dotted line of each grouping will always be on the beat.

Hope this helps!

Yes, I'm in the right mode and the lines are visible. The entered note on the very first beat of the very first bar sounds but does not display in Edit mode. If I leave Edit mode, it displays.

And again, in Track display: It used to be obvious but "Snap to Beat" obviously means something different now. With the "Snap to Beat" button selected I can place the vertical edit/timeline anywhere in between a beat and not always on the beat. Maybe the button is just not named/highlighted correctly.
