Custom line not showing in part


I’m able to draw a custom line in a score, but it is not appearing in the part. What am I doing wrong?

That’s curious. Try using Engrave > Split Multi-bar Rest to split the multi-bar rest in the part layout.

You’ll need to switch off multi-bar rests for the layout temporarily (which you can do on the Players page of Layout Options) and then create a split at each barline in the passage where your line should appear.

I placed the custom line on the Oboe 1 line, and it is visible in Galley View, but when I switch to Page View, the program is not switching from English Horn to Oboe 1 at bar 54.

Try putting in a fake/ghost note and scaling it down to 1% and remove the other rests. Does that force dorico to recognize the switch?

Thank you, Romanos! This will be a good workaround for the time being.

Daniel, thank you so much for your previous suggestions.

Aha, I’d failed to realise there was an instrument change going on there. Dorico will only switch instruments when there is a note, as James has suggested.
