My apologies if these questions have been asked before. I searched the forum and couldn’t find anything.
EXAMPLE 1: Why are the rests not amalgamated at the end of this measure? I have all the amalgamation settings turned ON.
EXAMPLE 2: Is it possible to NOT show the redundant “Ob.” label above the entrance of Oboe 2? I understand that the label appears because the player just switched from English horn, but the staff label already indicates that this is Oboe 2. In addition, is it possible to hide the “to English Horn,” “to Bass Clarinet” instrument change labels throughout the score, but leave them in the parts?
EXAMPLE 3: Again, the staff labels tell the story, and I’d love to hide the redundant “1” “2” and “Solo” markings. Any way to set this globally?
QUESTION 4 (no example): Is it possible to have four horns condensed onto one staff, but to pair horns 1 and 3 with stems up, and horns 2 and 4 with stems down? I’ve tried making a custom condensing group and assigning the instruments to stem directions and I described, but it doesn’t seem to work.
