The specify voicing in the manage parts isn't behaving as it should. It seems to be when you have two notes in a single layer and two notes in different layers in the same measure.

In general, this feature has a lot of potential, but is lacking. I often have movements where I want part of it to show single note passages and part of to not to. I end up having to cut corners and put things in multiple layers for the parts when the score doesn't need it.

This seems like a bug in a feature that already exists.

1) This is a reasonable Feature Request.

You should probably post it in the Feature Request forum.

 

2) I would not call this a bug, but rather an Unmet Reasonable Expectation (URE).

= The program does not work as expected.

When a program does not work as it should according to the manual, then it is a bug.

 

3) Your example is not a good example since it can easily be solved, by entering the music in two layers as {single note passages}.

Then, in the upper part, flip the first two stems down.

I just tried it, and it works for me.

 

4) A better example:

The same music notated in 6/8, with halved rhythm values.

With flagged notes the problem is not solved by just flipping the stem.

Peter's example works the same in Overture, Notion, Dorico and even Encore. Life's too short for me to open MuseScore and I don't have a license for Sibelius.
