Difficulty moving the cursor to a specific place in a measure

1st off, let me mention I'm having better luck with emailing a PDF of the score. This latest emailed PDF arrived in my email  in just moments.  Some other email PDF's seemed to take more than a day to arrive.  Just an observation.

I discovered that the left/right  wedge pointers/icons  (I don't know the name)  under the Select/Handwriting designation icon seem to move the cursor forward and backward.   But in measure 4 in my PDF example (linked below) ,  I want to change the 1/8th note (A) to a 16th followed by a 1/16th Eb.  I was unable to get the cursor to move to an empty space to add the 1/16th Eb.  

Also the last  E (4th beat)  in the treble clef in the 1st measure --- I want to make that E and Eb.  When I'm writing chromatic music I prefer to specify each accidental/alteration rather depend on the convention. I'm having great difficulty changing it to an Eb.

Any advice ? Thanks.

  • By the way,   the tempo marking of 110 means nothing.  I play this slowly.

    @indigo_dave what you’ve noted here and in your other email definitely sounds like a bug that was resolved for the version 6 update, which is arriving soon. If you’d like to download the early access to this update and are willing to confirm whether or not it resolves the issue, you may email [email protected] with a brief reference to this message that you would like a download code.
  • Thanks.  I will probably do this.
  • I'm going to email for the download code you mentioned.  

    I should mention that I discovered handwriting with the Apple Pencil 2 works well in conjunction with the tool bar. If I go into handwriting mode AND I (pen) touch the pertinent value -  half note, quarter note, eighth note (whichever I want to write) and any other pertinent modifier -  such as a tie, of triplet designation .....then the handwriting function with Apple Pencil 2 works very nicely.  

    But I figure there are cases where the Selection tool will be preferable to handwriting.  So I'm going to make an effort to work to resolve the issues I reported.  I think SP5 has a lot of great potential.
