I am trying to create text that only appears in my score, and none of the part layouts. This is text that is linked to the music, so I don’t want to do anything page-oriented like add Text Frames (which was suggested to me on Facebook). Here is what I am doing:
Enter some system text.
Turn the switch at the right of the properties panel to the ‘Globally’ scope.
Hide the text. At this point I have confirmed that the text is hidden in all layouts
In the score layout, switch the local properties switch back to the ‘Locally’ scope.
Toggle the ‘hide’ switch off in the score.
Now, if I am understanding everything correctly, I should now have achieved my goal… Except when I check the parts the text has been unhidden in all of them, like it didn’t matter that I flipped the switch back to ‘Locally’.
What’s even stranger is that with it now set to ‘Locally,’ if I hide the text it is ONLY hidden in the score, so the ‘Locally’ setting really is working as expected there!
Any help is appreciated… Or even confirmation that it’s a bug!
