I’m engraving a piece that has 3 piano staves. (Liszt.) I’ve already written a load of music in the 2-stave instrument.
If I Add a Staff Below, it appears between the two existing ones, even if I select the lower staff. This would be fine, except that lots of the detail I’ve already written gets lost when I paste upwards: arpeggio rolls, cross staff notes, voicing(!) etc.
If I create an Ossia, that creates a grand staff. Converting the instrument to a 3-staff Organ doesn’t seem to add an extra staff either?
Am I just going to have to adjust everything again, or is there a better way?
I just created a new project, added a piano, put in a few dummy notes and then attempted to add staves. If I click on a note in the top stave and select “add stave below” I get one in the middle. If I click on a note in the bass/left-handed stave I get an additional line BELOW the grand staff just as expected (and as you also want.). see img 1
I also tested only adding one stave below the bass stave (just in case experiment A only added a line below after there was an additional stave in the middle) and it too worked perfectly. img 2
Yeah, it can’t be selecting the stave rather than an object on it, as the signpost has to have a specific rhythmic location.
edit: that was to Romanos.
Ben, another reminder that implicit rests in Dorico are placeholders; they’re not real. You can’t use them to W between part and score, you can’t use them for this, and IIRC you can’t use them as a zooming focal point. And probably some other things too…
