I have an issue with the score display in Logic Pro X (10.3.2).

Consider the following chords (F#m and E6) that last a full bar each:


When switching to the score representation, I see the following:


and if I add a new bar, I get this:

Empty bar

While it's accurate, it doesn't make sense to display it that way.

Is there any reason for this?

    Logic pro isn't really for engraving sheet music so quirks like this are somewhat understandable. It's more normal than the "chord detector" they have.

  • There is so many bug in all that software that this is just a little issue. Sep 6 '17 at 16:57

What I can gather visually, your new bar contains a simplified rest notation rhythm as the second bar of your chords, specifically, there you have an E6 chord rhythmicised as dotted quaver + two 16ths + a half note, which is more accurately represented as in the second bar, namely, quaver + dotted 8th + 16th + half note.

It seems like the chord notation got messed up somehow, but you can try to repair it with view parameters.

  • How can the view parameters fix it? I've toggled some of the settings back and forth, but to no avail

  • @Thomas have you tried using separate duplicate that's quantized? It helps with scoring view Feb 2 '21 at 1:39
  • that issue ended up being random; some changes in the project would trigger a different representation.
