How to set up a common title-text block at top of first page of each part?
I am using 3.4.1 on Linux Mint, trying to pull parts from an orchestra score. The usual format is to have a full-width block at the top of the first page of each part, giving the title and composer. The block is the same on each part (except for the instrument name at the upper left corner). In 2.2 IIRC it was possible to use the default title-page text frame by reducing its vertical size, and it would flow onto the first page of each part. In 3.x I have been fighting to get it to do this. Is there a procedure I need to use?
The text editing and positioning in MS seems a bit odd for someone used to a word processor. Copy-and-paste does not always work, and when it does, it often loses font properties (point size, positioning, etc.) that have been set manually. I would guess that the intended approach is to set up a style entry for this one purpose; if so, it would be good to have some explicit description of the procedure, or some examples.
I even tried exporting the score from 3.x in .mxl and importing it to 2.3.2 to work on it there, but 2.3.2 seemed to choke on the file format; it rendered the score (with dynamics mispositioned vertically), but I couldn't add staff text where I needed Roman numerals for the movement numbers. Is there any reason why .mxl files from 3.x might not properly import into 2.x?
