How to move a staff up or down on just one system and/or change default position of multiple lyrics lines
Is there a way to do this? In other words, I don't want it to affect anything else on the page. I just want the bottom staf (tab staff)f of a notation staff/tab staff system to move up without affecting anything else on the page or any other pages.
See the attached file.
This brings me to another question that may end up making the first question obsolete.
I have things spaced out the way I want them, with four systems neatly appearing on each page.
For the "p, i, m, a" notations, I'm entering them as lyrics, because it's a really fast way to do it.
I have the "odd lines" and "even lines" set up so that the first two lines of "lyrics" are nicely positioned vertically. But when I click ENTER from the second line of lyrics to enter a third line, it's positioned too far down. So I'm having to manually select that (third) line of lyrics and move it back up a bit. That was still ok and didn't change the staff position.
The problem arose when I added a fourth line of lyrics. As soon as I hit ENTER from the third line to go to the fourth line of lyrics, they again appeared too far down, and the tab staff below them automatically moved down. Even when I manually moved the fourth line up, the tab staff stayed there, and I can't find a way to get it back.
The problem with this is that I don't have a lot of room to spare before the fourth system is going to get kicked off the page. I'd rather not decrease the maximum distance between systems, or else that's going to get a bit too crowded.
So basically I'm looking for one of two solutions:
- A way to move that tab staff back up without affecting anything else.
- A way to set a default height for the 3rd and 4th line of the lyrics.
