Repeart signs....

• Jul 27, 2019 - 20:35

I have repeat signs in my full score, but when I generate the parts, they don't appear in the parts?


You need to attach the problem score. My first (and only) guess is that you dragged the repeat bar lines to the middle of measures rather than splitting measures and adding repeats.

I am sorry.... what I meant to say was that the Voltas or... first and second ending lines don't show up in the parts. The repeat signs are there... but the first and second Volta lines/endings don't show up in the parts.
Sorry for the confusion.

The problem was that the first instrument (piano) was invisible when you applied the voltas and voltas are generated in the parts from the first staff only. You never applied a volta to that staff so it never got passed to the parts.

I added the volta to the piano and kept it visible so you could see. You can make it invisible now and it will work. I've seen discussion about this among the programmers so I believe this is a reported bug. If I'm right someone will likely post a link to the issue before long.

Mike, this is not related to voltas.... but possibly you know the answer... What if I want something to appear in one part and not the others...
for example... I want to place an alternate introduction in the Piano part.... I want the pianist to be able to use Intro 1 or Intro 2 at his discretion... but I don't want that to appear on the other parts in the score.
Can that be done?
right now I write two 2 bar intros for the pianist and they appear as four bars of rest in the other parts..
Or I tag an extra two bars at the end of the chart to provide an alternate intro...and it appears in the other horn parts as two bars of rest. How can I take that out of all of the parts but the piano?
Any idea?

One idea is in measure properties (right click a measure, choose measure (bar in GB) properties and there is a box at the top that says staff 1, staff 2 and so on. To the right of this are boxes you can use to make measures invisible in those staves and another to make the notes stemless in that measure. In all of the staves but the piano, make the first two measures invisible. Put the notes you need in the piano to tell him what you want him to do. Perhaps this will work for you.

A second option is to enter another instrument (piano) and mark both staves as cutaway in the staff/part properties after you enter notes in the first two measures. You can then put a note explaining to the pianist what you mean.
