Changing Which Staves Are Displayed in a Part

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

In Musician, a part displays the staves for one or more instruments or voices.

You can create a new part for some combination of staves you want to view and print together. For example, if you have an arrangement with a vocal choir section and instruments, you might want to prepare a separate choir section part for rehearsing the choir separately from the orchestra, and a separate orchestra section part for rehearsing the orchestra separately from the choir.

You can temporarily  or permanently  change which staves are displayed in a part. A temporary change in the list of staves that are displayed in a part lasts only as long as you are viewing that part.  If you select another part, and then return to the former, the original list of staves for that part will be restored.  Or, if you exit Musician and return, the temporary changes in the list of staves for that part will similarly be discarded.
 

prcarrow To permanently change the list of staves in a part:

1.Choose the Display or Define Part command in the Part menu.
The Display and Defined Parts dialog will be opened, as illustrated in Creating a New Part.
2.Select the part you wish to edit.
3.In the list of Staves in Part, select and unselect staves you wish to show and hide in the part.
4.Click the Change Staves Assigned to Part button.
 

prcarrow To temporarily change the list of staves in a part:

1.Choose Setup command in the Staff menu.
2.Toggle the check mark for Show for each of the staves you wish to temporarily show or hide in the part.

 

NOTE: The check mark for 'In Part' indicates whether the stave is normally (permanently) included in the part.  You cannot directly change the check mark for 'In Part'.  If you wish to change whether a staff is permanently included in the part, then follow the previous procedure.
