I’ve spent some time searching for the answer to a question, which to everyone else probably is ridiculously obvious and has been asked an answered before. In that case, sorry.
Anyway: I have a densely packed page in a score layout, so I enter Engrave mode to move some objects very subtly out of each others way. It turns out the staves move with the object I have selected, narrowing the space between staves, thus neutralising my attempts to tidy up. What do I do to avoid this? I want the objects to move, not the staves, since that will prevent my desired result.
Thanks and apologies.
Edit: Doesn’t happen all the time. When moving slurs, for example, staves stay where they are. When moving hairpins up, the stave below will also move up.
