Can't remove unwanted text subtitle after XML import

Hi there

I can’t work out how to delete the subtitle which appears in the Melody part only. Can anyone help? Thanks in advance :slight_smile:

Welcome to the forum @Rozism ! If you’re talking about the word “Melody” which is highlighted orange in your screenshot because it’s selected, you should be able to press Backspace or Delete to delete that.

If it’s a text item, you can delete it in the same ways as selecting and deleting any other notation, like dynamics, slurs, lyrics.

On a side note, I think “one-horse” is typically hyphenated, “o-pen” has its syllable split before the p, rather than after it, and you probably want to end with an exclamation mark!


Hi Lille

Thank you. The backspace/delete button doesn’t get rid of it, unlike a dynamic marking. Or Cut. Help!!!

I’ve changed the grammar thank you :slight_smile:

In that case, can you share the project file? Either in a reply to this thread, or you can message me privately here on the forum.
