How do I go about telling Elements to have X number of measures per line in the score? Example, four measures per line.
Layout options > casting off
(I have pro but I believe this is available in elements)
And where is that located?
Separate topic, but how do I input slurs for the top voice in a two-voice setting? Every time I try to input slurs, it automatically puts the slur over the entire thing.
Layout Options. Ctrl-Shift-L (or Cmd-Shift-L on Mac). You can get to it in Setup mode, but the key command is easier.
You can flip the slur by pressing F. Can you show a screenshot to make sure I know what you’re wanting?
Here’s the relevant page in the Dorico Elements manual.
That worked. Thank you all!
Something I just ran into. Dorico keeps putting whole rests over every staff in each measure and won’t let me delete them. How do I fix this?
Turn on voice colors in the view menu. You almost certainly are entering the notes in a down stem voice. You can select them and move them to the upstem voice.
I have the voice colors on, but how do I go about moving them to upstem voice?
Something else. Whenever I have two voices on the same staff, with, say two notes in one measure and two more in the second measure, there always a leftover rest in the second measure in whichever voice does not get used. Is there a way I can delete that rest or is it there permanently?
One way is to select the rest, Edit > Remove Rest.
