I am very disappointed no one from the Development Team has commented on this problem.
I am not looking for a fully fledged Engrave Mode in Elements just the ability to tidy up the display slightly to correct the problem in my OP.
Another problem I have is creating a simple movable text frame. I am trying to create simple Lead Sheets for my home keyboard, one item I would like to add is which Voice and Style to use on my keyboard in the form of a text box in the top left of the page. With Elements this simple procedure seems impossible so I have to print out the page then write the voice and style with a pen - not ideal.
As I say I’m not looking for a full Engrave Suite in Elements just a bit more help creating acceptable looking Lead Sheets and at least the ability to add a text box (frame) anywhere on the page.
I cannot warrant upgrading to Pro to produce simple Lead Sheets, Finale’s Printmusic (Finale’s ‘Elements’) did this very well but is now six years old.
