Instrument names

Postby 158strauss » Wed Nov 15, 2017 9:26 pm

I'm working in Sib. 5, German version - I started changing the German names (by default) to English names. The first page was successful. On the second page I started on the abbreviated names - but now I have between pages 1 and 2 the abbreviated version "Perc. 1" which is no longer in its position, but is "floating" between the pages and higher up in the score, on the level between the Tuba and Timpani lines. All my efforts to click on it are in vain. Is there some way of re-inputting the label and forcing it to move into its proper position? Thanks in advance for any ideas.

I figured it out. I just copied the notes from the bad staff onto an extra staff, then deleted the bad staff, re-entered it and the bad text was gone! Then copied the notes from the extra staff to the re-entered staff. I'm just a beginner so this probably sounds elementary, but it was challenging me!
