How to begin a new movement without a new page.

• Feb 25, 2017 - 23:54

I am type-setting a work with multiple short movements. Each with different instrumentation, time and key signatures. I would like to have each movement not begin on a new page. In this particular case it's very wasteful of paper to have to treat each movement as a separate entity. Is there any way I can get musescore to support such a change within the same file, or some other method?

If you use the Section Break element instead of the Page Break element, it should take care of most of your requests already.

As for supporting different instrumentation: you'll have to add all instruments to the whole score, then make use of the 'hide empty staves' function to have them hidden in sections where they're not wanted.

Sure, use a section break from the Breaks & Spacers palette. This starts a new movement (resetting measure number, suppressing courtesy signatures, etc) without starting a new page. You can add text frames for movement titles etc.
