Invisible Elements

• May 29, 2016 - 06:05

I was under the impression that making an element invisible (that is, unchecking the visible box in the inspector), that these elements would not appear in the printed score. Well, I have a score with a couiple of tempo marks that are only for my personal use with playback, and they both have the visible box unchecked, yet when I export to PDF they do appear. The PDF files are for distribution and these will ultimately be the printed copies.


My best guess is that you have two tempo marks overlapping each other, and only the top one is invisible. But indeed, we would need you to attach the score in order to do more than guess.

I think I have already figured out what I did wrong. For one thing, it was not the Export of the score that was the problem but rather the Export Parts. It seems that unchecking the visible box on the main score did not affect the parts. I had to uncheck the visible boxes on each individual part and then re-generate the pdf files. Sorry for the confusion, I guess it was panic.
