I’ve been struggling with the following concept for a day or two. I’ve been trying different things, reading the manual, scouring the Forum but still can’t manage to do the following.
I’m working on a musical. I have the musical numbers input as separate flows (only one at the moment), but there are places where there is an underscore along with the script. For these musical ideas, I’ve input them as separate flows.
I have nine or ten pages at the beginning for Title page, cast, synopsis, song index and 1st page of script. These pages appear to be independent of Flow 1, because if I uncheck Flow 1 from the Full score, I am left with just these pages. Flow 1 then appears (opening number). After this, there is a musical interlude as the cast vacate the stage (Flow 2) , then there is half a page of script (put in place by Engrave - Insert Page - Insert Text Frame), followed by what should be Flow 3 (a kind of spoken recit)…I can’t get Flow 3 to site correctly. It either appears after Flow 2, or if I create a ‘Music Frame’ after the half page of text, and copy/paste it appears there, but also on the next page?
I have just tried something else which is most bizarre and ended up with what I want. I grabbed the lower handle of the ‘offending’ copy of Flow 3 and simply minimised it and the music no longer shows. It is still there but the minimised frame can’t show it. Surely this will lead to further problems if I construct the score like this? What is the correct way of going about this?
I presume the Dorico team are going to cover things like this in update YouTube videos (or I noticed a live stream being booked for next week?).
