first and second parts on one staff

• Jan 11, 2015 - 12:04

I scored a piece for four trumpets, and for convenience, I scored the first and second parts on one staff, and the third and fourth parts on another staff. Now I want to print out parts, but, of course, two parts appear on each chart. How do I tell the program to just print one of the two lines, or, print out two copies and erase the first line on one and the second line on the other?

thanks for helping



One way would be:
Select> More, Same stave, Same voice. Then delete (or copy and paste into a new score).
Save as * 1.mscz.
Repeat for the other voices

I would do the work in separate staves.

But by the way, Can I get some help in copying an pasting a first trumpet and then using the second staff in the score and pasting it a second lower? What I am working on is doing the first part and then copying the first part and pasting it into its own staff but in the second voice, sorry a third lower as it is suppose to be. co

This function is generally referred to as "exploding". You can do this 1.3 using a plugin (see Plugins menu at right of this page), or in experimental 2.0 builds using Edit / Tools / Explode.
