I am engraving some etudes and I want the system number to be where the instrument name usually is. Is there a simple way to do this? Changing the instrument name to 1. will only change every system to be named 1.
I included a sloppy picture of what I’m hoping to achieve.
Probably the easiest way is to use the Divisi feature. At each Divisi change, you can set the labeling.
- Make sure you’re using a Section Player.
- In Layout Options > Staves and systems, disable staff labels and disable divisi change labels above staves.
- At the beginning of each system, add a divisi change. Edit > Staff > Change Divisi.
- Set the Divisi for one Player, select that Player and set the Label in the text box below.
Edit: Edited Change Divisi path for 3.5.
That’s the ticket! Thanks!
