Highlighted staff changes when trying to edit Staff Properties


quote:

X2 Songbook Edition - This problem has vexed me for along time on many different files > Trying to edit Staff Properties. When I click "Staff Properties" on a highlighted staff, the highlighting changes to another staff, and any changes then happen to the wrong staff. Caps Lock is off. I usually use "Page Width" Zoom and don't even see the highlighted staff, but do notice the intended staff is no longer highlighted. Changing to a wider view may show the highlighted staff, but that doesn't help edit the staff I want. I even tried this with Caps Lock on to see if that kept the correct staff highlighted. Nada. HELP!



Staff Properties always applies the ACTIVE (highlighted) staff line. If you move your cursor out of the active staff and drag it over another staff when trying to select something from the menu or toolbar, the active staff will switch. Carefully move your cursor horizontally out of the active staff or else hit the Caps Lock key. The BEST WAY to open Staff Properties is to click on the PROPERTIES tool (the arrow at the far-right of the lower toolbar) then right-click inside the active staff. That opens the Score Properties window.

Re: Highlighted staff changes when trying to edit Staff Properties


I have SS X2 Pro and it seems to work as advertised for me. Click on big Properties arrow in toolbar, Move cursor down to desired staff and click on yellow arrowhead that appears just to left of staff beginning which brings up the Staff Properties window. The desired staff doesn't have to be the one highlighted since moving the cursor to the desired staff automatically changes the highlighting if necessary.

This isn't something I use much if at all so am I on the right track or are we talking about something else.
