How to get rid of grand staves, can't scroll to bottom of score, maybe one of two other things.
I'm still really new with MuseScore. So far, I've used it to import a MIDI file that no other piece of scoring software I have access to could handle, but MuseScore handled it with aplomb. Saved me a huge amount of work.
Currently I'm at it again. I've managed to import a Concerto in 12 parts that I scanned from a pdf with another application. The music has problems and I'm gonna either edit it to fix it, or I'll discard it and key the score in manually. I'm probably gonna have to do the latter, but I haven't given up yet with this pdf to MIDI conversion just yet.
One thing the converter did was assign grand staves to all instruments. I managed to delete the bottom staff to only one -- clarinet -- but I haven't been able to do it with any of the other instruments. I deleted the clarinet's extra staff just by right clicking on it and then clicking on "delete." I have looked all through the menus and everywhere I know to look and I cannot find any command anywhere that allows me to specify whether or not I want an instrument to use the grand staff or just a single one. There's gotta be a command for this somewhere. Care to tell me where it's hiding?
Also, this same piece of music, I can't scroll to the bottom of the page. It won't let me get below about halfway through the staff of the ninth instrument. I'm counting instruments here and not staves. If I'm counting staves, it's 14. I tried zooming out and that didn't help. I tried dragging things around with the mouse and, well, that dragged the composition around on the screen, but I still couldn't get below the 14th staff. There are still three instruments below the point where it won't go any further.
And lastly (for now) I've noticed three different colorations to note heads. There's the normal black color, a drab sort of green color and a bright red color. Well, there's also blue, the color they turn when I click on them. The colorations appear to be randomly distributed in the music and I haven't yet been able to figure out how to get their colors to go away. Any suggestions?
