Staff Spacing

Post by normberk » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:42 am

In Engrave mode with Staff Spacing activated, is it possible to move two or more staves at once? After several attemps, I'm guessing not; but perhaps I've missed a trick.

Just make sure that the littles squares are selected (red), alt-arrow and that's it. Those staves will move, not the others!

Thanks, Marc. I was trying to select squares with Shift or Ctrl -- but not both together. Obviously, that's the "trick" I missed.

While on the topic: Why the large and small squares; both seem to have the same effects. Also, why are some lines/squares blue and some red?

The small squares are for individual staff adjustments within a system. The large square is for moving the whole system. The color red indicates manual overrides.
