Bar Numbers in new parts

Postby ScottRossMolyneux » Thu Nov 01, 2018 5:52 pm

I've been working on a score that features string divisi. In order to include all of the staves in one part I made a new part with all three staves in it. However, in the new parts the bar numbers now all appear under the stave instead of above the stave. Perhaps this is because I hid the staves when they are empty? But even when all three staves appear the bar numbers still appear under the staves. I've tried fixing the the Text Style as well as the Design and Position but I don't seem to be able to get the bar numbers to show up as they do in other parts.

Have a look at Appearance->System Object Positions. If this part was made after the other parts, then there is a likelihood that it has not picked up the positions from the other parts (this happens all the time to me.) If I could be bothered, I'd make a new house style/mss paper but faffing about takes more time than I want to give to technicalities!

If that fails, then go to Engraving Rules->Bar Numbers and see what is selected there (bottom left).
