All of a sudden I cannot copy anything into my 2nd violins, there is nothing going on that I can see, and it works on previous bars, see screencast:
Does it work if you double-click to invoke the caret before pasting? Does it work if you alt-click rather than Cmd-C Cmd-V?
No, those methods aren´t working either…
What about if you select the (supposedly) empty bars in the violin and hit delete, before pasting? Otherwise it’s probably a case of posting a cutdown version of the file (or emailing to the development team if there are copyright/privacy concerns).
No, still nothing. Ok, thanks. Will send it in…!
I mean that bar looks like it already has a rest in it but what happens if you put the caret there and type Shift-B rest Enter. Then can you paste? The other possibility is that something’s going awry with the hairpin just before - try deleting it and reinputting. What you’re experiencing certainly isn’t common behaviour, so really difficult to diagnose from a video.
So, I think I have found the culprit, when I switched on flagposts, I found a flag with “-1 staff”.
- what is it, and what happens if I delete it? There are no divisi in this section.
You’d need to look at it in page view to see what effect it has, but it’s a signpost created by choosing Edit > Staff > Remove Staff.
