Cross Staff Stem Issue

Hi Folks,
I have a harp part which looks like this, so no problems:

Then on following pages the rolls have been formatted like this, with the stems carrying across the gap between staves:

I’ve tried the M and N functions to move the parts across, I’ve also tried adjusting the voice settings. There’s clearly something I’m missing.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?


That looks like a chord that belongs to the bottom staff, but has had the top 2 notes crossed to the top staff.

Select the chord, reset its cross-staffing, then move the two top notes up to the top staff.


If you wanted the second image to look like the first, use ALT/OPT with M or N to transfer, rather than just move but keep connected.

Thanks @Lillie_Harris and @Derrek, that was the nudge I needed! :slight_smile:
