Questions regarding combining multiple files into one
I'll try and explain this as concisely as possible (for the record, for time being I'm stuck using 2.3.2).
I transcribed the conductor's score for an entire ~56m piece of orchestral music, with each movement of the piece as it's own musescore file. I would now like to consolidate each file/movement into a single file/piece of music, not only for the conductors score, but also a single file for each respective instrument part (which I'll of course be parting out from the conductor's score files). I guess the main idea behind this is so that when printing, space is not wasted in between each movement (presently separated into files). In other words, so that when printed, it transitions between movements like a normal professionally published score (see attached screenshot #1).
I decided to start by trying to consolidate the instrument parts first (i.e. before seeking to consolidate the conductor's score).
I started with flute 1 & 2 (flute 1 & 2 sharing a single staff, separated into their respective voices), which I extracted from each file/movement of the conductor's score and combined into a new file by copy/pasting. Obviously I will have to repeat this same process for each instrument part. Overall this seemed fairly effective, although, I did end up having to re-enter all the time/key signatures barlines etc. for the entire piece as I went along in order for the copied content to paste correctly, as these items wouldn't copy/paste over with the notes, etc.
So this brings me to my questions:
1) is there an easier/more practical way to do this?
2) this method obviously works for single part's, but it seems like it wouldn't work when it comes time to consolidate the conductor's score into a single file, on account of it having, instead of a single staff, multi-instrument staff systems, and that vary from movement to movement (or as it stands presently, file to file)?
3) is there a way to make it so that "end barline's" are always end up aligned on the far right of the page, and that afterwards it starts with a new system of measures (refer to attached screenshot #2)?
4) if this is possible, is there a way to indent the first measure of the new system (again refer to screenie 2)?
5) and again, if it is possible to create new "system of measures" in a file, is it possible to to reset the measure numbers with it so the measure counts reset with each "system of measures"?
Basically, in summary, what I'm going for is when printed, a simple, efficient, and organic look between movements (which are presently separated each into their own files), similar to that reflected in the screenshots, with separate measure counts for each movement, and ultimately a single file for the conductors score, and a single file for each instrument part.
