Flows on parts

Post by tubagirl63 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 5:44 pm

I have created a four movement work for wind band and each movement is a new flow. I have given each flow a title and in the score each flow starts a new page. In the parts I want the flows to appear under each other. I have selected default part and have changed the choice so that flows do not start on a new page. This all works well apart from I don't have the titles of each movement? What do I need to do to get the titles showing in the parts?
Thanks

You can set up text frames with the token text {@flow2title@} or {@flow3title@} to force specific flow information onto the page of your part.

So do you just insert text frame where you require header?

You insert text frame, but make sure it is not overlapping the music frame. And do that when you have finished the layout of your flow, since the music of the flow must end before the subsequent flowtitle is displayed...
This will require:
1. Shorten the musicframe so that the entire flow finishes there
2. Create the text frame for next flow
3. Create the music frame for next flow on that page.
I hope Dorico’s team will create an elegant and automatic way to have those flowtitles on a same page, yet I understand the complexity of it.
