In a part, how to make some notes not play

• Oct 19, 2020 - 16:20

Hello everyone

I'm trying to use the "parts" feature to quickly create sheet music for choir practice that contains only one part (soprano, alto, tenor, or bass). Unfortunately, I want the lyrics to be visible, and unfortunately the lyrics are tied to the soprano notes, so I always have to include soprano in every part. This is not a problem per se, but I don't want the soprano notes to play. I have selected all soprano notes and then unchecked the Play option under Notes in the Inspector, but even so, when I play the part, the soprano notes play along with e.g. the alto notes.

What am I doing wrong here... why do the soprano notes keep on playing even though they're marked as not play? (Score attached)



What you did should work in my opinion though it slightly more difficult than what does work. Open the mixer while you are viewing the part and mute the soprano and you will only hear the alto in your attached score. If you select the main score after you do this, you will see that it doesn't affect the main score - which is good.
