Separating voices into separate staves

• Jun 19, 2018 - 14:10

Is there a way to separate voices out into separate staves? Specifically, I have a complex flute quartet written out on two staves. It is very hard to read the parts and I'd like to present it on four staves. Is there a way to cut Voice 2 and paste it into a separate staff?

I would use the filter selector (F6 to toggle it) and cut and paste voice 2 to the new staff then exchange voices 1 and 2 then delete the rests that are left in voice 2. This seems to be a much cleaner way to do it IMHO. You will need to edit dynamics and staff text on the new staff since they will mostly be attached to voice 1.

Jojo and Mike, Both of your responses are extremely helpful. I have never used either the "explode" function nor the Selection Filter. I have heard of the Explode function, but I haven't used it. I didn't even know there was such a thing as the Selection Filter. So much easier than what I was doing!
