Drum cues

Is there no way to do drum cues like other instruments?

Which way around are you wanting to cue? You can’t show cues containing the music of pitched instruments on unpitched instrument staves, it’s true.

I would like to put drum cues into other instrument parts, for example a 4 count Hi Hat count off…

You can cue unpitched instruments to pitched instruments - e.g. show a hi-hat cue on a flute staff.

If you’re not seeing a cue, it might be that you’re in the full score – by default, cues aren’t shown in scores but are shown in parts.

Once input, you can change the vertical position of unpitched cues. To show them inside the staff, deactivate the Rhythmic cue property and change their Unpitched note position.
