I’m making a catalogue of multiphonics because that’s just Londonxmas2020.
I want to show four multiphonics per system, 5 systems per page - fine
But if I want the names / ID number of each sound - written in default text - to be the same distance / vertical position from the stave, then it seems I have to painstakingly do this by hand.
There is no object ruler to check distances, and if I try to type in Y values into the DT’s properties in engrave mode, then frustratingly, it seems that when you give two different objects the same Y value, they won’t be aligned if the music content is forcing one to move up. See my example below.
I’ve already encountered this problem in Dorico but couldn’t find a solution. Before it was just in odd spots in piece, but as I’m working on a larger catalogue and need consistency, I’d like to ask if there is a better or even a ‘correct’ way (what with Dorico being so logical and all…)
Right now I’m clicking and dragging a selection box to use as a ruler to check alignment… there must be a better way?
