Flow Frame in Parts/Flow Philosophy

Hi Folks,

I am a Jazz musician, and primarily write lead sheets. I don’t have much need for Flows in general, but they are helpful when I’m writing larger projects. Is there any way to default to NOT showing a flow frame in my instrument parts? I know I can manually remove this frame, but when working with multi-part, single-flow projects that can be very tedious. I’ve already forgotten to remove the frame in one of my parts, and ended up bringing in a less-than-professional chart.

It doesn’t make sense to me to specify “Flow #1” when there’s only one flow in the project. This mentality makes setting up single-flow projects a little more tedious than it needs to be, in my opinion.

Thanks all for your help and responsiveness, switching to Dorico has been wonderful in general!

Yup, change this layout option, save as default, and never think about it again :slight_smile:

I’d always recommend hiding flow headings this way, as deleting them manually from pages results in page overrides.
