You might have entered the note value on an odd beat or you might have entered a dotted note.
"Example: You enter an eighth, a sixteenth note and again an eighth note. The program now automatically writes the second eighth note as two sixteenth notes with a tie."
FORTE therefore implements the common notation form with a tie. You can easily correct this by selecting the tied note.
- Switch to select mode "CTRL + 1" and click once on the tied notes to select them.
- Now click once on the right mouse button.
- Select "Consolidate Ties" from the context menu.
Advanced users should also consider adjusting the time signature of the score accordingly.
