How to make notes in different voices overlap?
How do you make the same note, that exists in different voices, overlap?
I'm trying to re-transcribe an arrangement so I can transpose it a step up. The original looks like my first attachment.
However, when I enter the same bass note in different voices, instead of displaying them in the same column, like a unison, it shows the note in the second voice offset, as shown in my second attachment.
How do I fix this?

The problem is they're not technically a unison. So treating them like a unison won't work.

Try hiding the "bass" noteheads in voice 1. Select the note and press v.

Yep, making overlapping note in the first voice invisible does the trick. Thanks!

BTW, you can "automate" the selection process:
• Right-click a note on the downbeat in voice 1
• From the contextual menu: Select>More, then check Same beat same voice
• Press v
Result: All down beat notes are selected in Voice 1 and hidden ... so you'd be half done.
• Then Right-click a the next pertinent note (in your case select a note on "and after 2" in voice 1)
• Again, from the contextual menu: Select>More, then check Same beat same voice
• Press v
Result: All the notes on "2 and" are selected in Voice 1 and hidden.
Is this what you mean?
