Can default be applied to accidental to continue to end of measure without displaying repeatedly

• Mar 10, 2014 - 13:53

When I apply an accidental to a note I would like it to continue to the end of the measure without the symbol displaying again. For example if I am writing a measure with A - Bb - C - Bb. I only want the b (flat) symbol to display the first time in the measure not both times as in attached example (the reader knows the second B is flat (Bb) by default).

How can I change option for accidental symbol to only display first time?.

Sounds like you are using the palette at the top (by the notes) to add accidentals. You should be using the up/down arrows to adjust the pitch of notes instead. The ones from the palettes are more permanent.

Delete the two accidentals, select the first B and use down-arrow to change it to a flat. Select the fourth note and use down-arrow again to change that note. See how the second flat will disappear.
