split stave

• Mar 21, 2016 - 17:08

if I have violins in 2 parts and I want to change to violins in 12 parts for a few bars how do I do it? The split stave option just seems to add staves to the whole score.


It does, but then you can use Style / General / Hide empty staves to make the second staff disappear where not wanted. You want to set the other staves to "Never hide" if you don't want other staves affected.

BTW, you probably don't actually want.need to use "Split staff" for this - the main point of that is to actually divide up the notes according to some split point, for use when people have imported a MIDI file or some such for piano that has all notes on one staff and they want a quick way of restrucuring the music for two staves. In your case, the dividing up of the notes is probably going to be counterproductive. All you really want to do is add staves, via Edit / Instruments.
