?? Exactly How "Realize Chord Symbols" Works ??
I'm trying to create a score with 3-staffs (vocal plus piano). The source is 1915 paper sheet music. so I COULD just copy all the notes one by one into MuseScore. But that seems hugely labor-intensive, since I have very little experience entering multiple notes in a single staff and I'm VERY slow at it. For this song, I already have a MuseScore lead sheet with one staff (vocal plus chords). So, after creating a new file with 3-staffs, I copied the lead sheet contents into the vocal line of the score. I noticed that when you right-click on a chord symbol, there's an option "Realize Chord Symbols", which seemed like a promising way to short-cut the data entry.
However, when I tried it, the detailed notes showed up in the vocal staff. Would there be any way to direct the chord realization to one of the piano staffs? Alternatively, is there a way to copy all the chord symbols from the vocal staff to one of the piano staffs, realize THOSE chords and then delete the chord symbols from that staff? And is there any way to realize chord symbols for more than one measure at a time? (Yes, I can hear my mother's ghost in my ear warning "that's the lazy way. In the long run, it would be faster to just suck it up and enter the piano notes one by one. And when you're done, you'll have learned a new skill." [g])
But MuseScore has so many wonderful features that I don't know about, that I thought it couldn't hurt to ask the experts if there might be a better way to accomplish my objective.
Thanks for any advice anyone can offer. (Even if all you say is "your mother was right", that would help too. [g])
