Crescendo/decrescendo attributes not carrying over to parts

I can’t find a solution for this in a forum search or a help file search, so I’m asking here. When I enter attributes for “cresc.” or “dim.” in the full score to change it to something else (e.g., “crescendo…” with no abbreviation, or changing “diminuendo” to “decrescendo”), my changes aren’t getting carried over to the individual parts. I have to go in on the parts and make the same changes there to get what I need. (Good thing I’m only working on a woodwind quartet!) What is going on? What am I doing wrong? Please advise.

Double check that your properties scope is set to Global:

Does this help?


Changing the property scope affects properties you subsequently change in the future. You can copy the existing state of properties to all layouts using propagate properties.
