Continue slurs from hidden stave

Post by gstew » Tue Jan 14, 2020 6:11 pm

hey everyone,

I have a score with a lot of divisi strings and was wondering if there's a way to show the receiving end of a tie coming from a hidden stave on the previous page? I've tried faking it w the L.V. symbol but it seems a little too short to look like a tie and also when the ties are under a note the LV is an over note looking tie. Any ideas?


thanks,

The usual way to fake a tie like this is to use a non-magnetic slur. It won't play back and there will be some tweaking to do, but you can make it look convincing.

Read that after I'd replied! :)

About time too, I'm sure a lot of people are saying. After umpteen years of faking it, I suppose I've become used to doing it. Still have no pressing reason to upgrade to 2020.1, though the auto-optimising of staves is appealing!
