"4) Click on the Tie (+) button"

This is the bit that is difficult to follow. I guess you are referring to a button in a palette, but the picture you give of it does not correspond with the one in use in current versions of Denemo. What version are you using (Help->About gives the version)?

In any case, right click on the button and choose Help from the menu that pops up. This should explain what the button does.

It may behave differently if you have notes selected (there is a preference you can set to apply keyboard short cuts to all the objects in the selection I think, but I don't think that would apply to palette buttons). But the behavior you describe doesn't match any intended behavior of any command I can think of, now or in the past.

I meant "I don't understand why it should."

As you can see in the image attached, when you create some notes and then try to tie two eight notes together, the second eight note attached to it disappears.

1) Create a melody with many eight notes, that ends with a quarter note.
2) Note that, at this point, the quarter note is selected
3) Select an eight note followed by another eight note
4) Click on the Tie (+) button

Expected: The two eight notes should be linked, and the eight note following that should still exist.

What happens instead: The eight note following the eight note you just tied another note to doesn't exist anymore.

Discussion: Is this an expected behaviour? Perhaps it should not be. I understand why it should. Thank you!
