First bar (system) text inaccessible behind flag


When I add (system) text (e.g. ‘Intro’) in the first bar, it often gets completely hidden behind a flag (e.g. for an upbeat bar or hiding a staff) I then try to click the text in order to edit it but I can’t as it’s under the flag.

Is there some sort of workaround like a keyboard shortcut to navigate to the text in order to edit it?

Thanks so much.

Alt-Shift-click will allow you to select superimposed elements. Keep clicking until you get the selection you want. Handy trick.


Problem solved! That was fast. Cheers :slight_smile:

You can also hide/show signposts for individual items or all signposts.
