How shift measures to the left

Postby kevquick » Thu Feb 14, 2019 5:46 pm

I wish to move these top two measures all the way to the left so they align on the left side. However, Sibelius 7.5 won't let me shift the measures away from the right side.

Also, how do I hide the "courtesy" 4/4 from the top line? I'm not able to left or right click on it.

1. how did you create them in the forst place?
2. Re-input the TS, but choose More Options from the menu and then untick the option for cautionary.

Turn on View: Handles.

Select this handle, just to the right of the beginning of the indented stave.

Reset Position.

You'll probably want to Select All then Unlock Format too.

1. I simply made a few measures, but then I dragged over the measure from the left to the right.
2. Thanks! That solved it!
