strange behavior of added staff below inst

Post by gstew » Mon Dec 16, 2019 9:56 pm

hey everyone,

weird thing happening , I have my string section done with Violin I w three staff added below it( for divisi) and the rest of the strings done the same w three staff added below the instrument. For some reason in in only one 30 bar section there's rests in the same voice behind the notes and the staff below is blank with no notes or rests, I can't figure it out, I must have accidentally hit something that merged those random bars where it happens, I can't seem to un merge them. Any ideas? I've tried deleting the whole string section and recopying from an older version but the same problem is there. I'm sure its something simple that I'm missing.

thanks,

One thing to try might be to copy everything but the strings to a new score. Then add the strings form the older version.

I'm thinking that something in the present score is the problem. Sometimes copying in sections strips out problems. Sometimes.

My suggestion would be that staves have been dragged on top of each other accidentally. Select the section concerned and click reset space above/below and then optimize on the layout tab.

thanks Mike,

I ended up just deleting and copying rests into the bars that were blank and reinputting the strings for that section, any time I copied from the original score( which I accidentally set up w inst for each divisi instead off a staff below) it would cause the same problem in the same bars. Hopefully won't happen again in the score, doesn't;t look like it anyhow.

thanks again,
