Staff type change and adding new bar

• Oct 11, 2019 - 07:40


Is there a way to insert a new bar previous to a staff type change, so that the staff type remains where it should be? Otherwise the score content is shifted one bar, but the staff type change still occurs on the same bar, it doesn't "shift along".

Many thanks in advance!


No, 'Insert' inserts before the current measure, but keeps its properties, including the instrument change, "Apend" appends to the end of the score.
Same problem with frames, clef-, key- and timesig changes.

Workaround: select the measure before the instrument change, Insert, then copy/cut the old measure and paste into the new.
