one voice across both staves


Hi community,
I am having trouble correcting a piano score where one voice extends into the other stave. I just found the suggestion to put on caps lock and I am able to change the pitch of the notes with nudge mode. But I am not able to add or remove sharps etc. Any suggestions? Many thanks

mutt,

It's the same idea as grabbing and moving the notes: they belong to the staff, and the accidentals and accents belong to the notes: so you make the correct staff the "active" one, and lock it so it doesn't switch after you select the accidental you want to add and move your mouse to select the note to attach it to.

nope, does not seem to work for me. Just to recap: I lock the correct staff by hitting "caps lock" (or "show active staff" in the menu). I chose an accidental, lets say a sharp. The notes that are located within the active staff will highlite yellow and I can thus add the sharp. The notes that extend into the other staff will not turn yellow and I can't add the sharp. I don't know if it matters but I am working on a macbook...

Mutt,
Well I'll be darned--you're absolutely right! I could have sworn I did that in the past, but after reading your post went and tried it. My sincerest apologies for misleading you.

I did find a way to add accidentals and accents, though it's not very convenient: temporarily move the note back to it's parent staff, add the mark(s) and move it back. Sorry, but that's the best I could come up with.

I've had the same (sort of) issue with crossing and unison notes. Sometimes it's easiest to drag them up or down, make your changes, and drag them back.
