hmm that’s what I thought but I’m viewing the layout associated with the layout options, also the Trumpet name options are the same as the horn and winds and they are all saying follow layout for showing transposition. I would imagine I would be seeing an issue with those instruments as well if it were that
Are you positive you’ve chosen the right instrument in the instrument picker (I suppose a Bb trumpet)? Because there are also trumpets in C… Well, in any case, it should show up in the label, as well as in the key signature (if it’s a transposing layout).
I always write for Trumpet in C and it used to have the Always show Transposition checked. But then yesterday I wanted to clean up the score with less ink by not having the “in C” on every page bc its not necessary
The issue is, its customary and needed to specify Trumpet “in C” for clarity on the first page. Is there no way to do this only on the first page with settings? I’d rather not have to rename the Full Name to Trumpet in C
And second question, is there a way to remove the 123 from the staff name? I’d rather it say 3 Trumpets in C on the first page then simply Trp. thereafter
I don’t think you can remove the numbers while using condensing. That is how it works…
I don’t know why the transposition doesn’t show, even if in C (as I wrote in my previous post). Maybe someone from the team could explain it — I admit I didn’t test it so I’m trusting kupo15 on this.
Only because it seems like a workaround that could affect other things. I mean I guess I could for now and deal with unforseen issues if they arise later
The last time I saw a post years ago the only work around was to put a space after the name bc I think it auto numbers if adjacent instruments have the same name. Also groups resets the numbers so technically I could make each instrument its own group which would be silly. Surely they’ve created a preference or option by now to include numbering I would hope but maybe not
Yeah that sounds like a bad idea too, if it’ll mess with parts that’s a bigger problem than having the numbers there unfortunately
I’m not sure because I accidentally saved the trumpet settings as default and don’t know how to remove that back to factory settings. If I select Always show it shows all the time but I don’t want it all the time. Actually, I just tried it with Clarinet in C and its acting the same way.
I wonder if its an oversight to treat all C instruments without showing on the first page
Oh that’s a really cool thing! I’m not seeing anything for the individual instrument settings though. I don’t think I changed much of anything though other than the abbrev. name
For just the first page and not afterwards? If I chose “Always show” it’ll show the C but there isn’t any “Show on first page only” option, its either Always or Never or Layout Options which has the option on splitting between first and after. I would think this would put the C on first and not but maybe it only refers to text and not transposition text (unless I’m in the wrong section)
Judging from the responses so far, I doubt you’ll get much more helpful help without uploading a file. Save a couple of pages-worth, with the Silence template applied, so that we can see your exact settings. Then we’ll all be working from the same assumptions and won’t be blind guessing.
Switch to the full score, that is what I was working with and the screenshots I was sharing. If you are referring to the Trumpet in C, that file had the recent change where I wrote Trumpet in C in the name. We are trying to have the “in C” part without explictily writing it so you’ll have to remove the “in C” part in the name
That’s because Trumpet in C as a name is set to default for the instrument (bc I checked that tick box). So when you deleted and readded it named it as Trumpet in C. You’ll need to go into the name a name it just Trumpet
