I’m converting my last orchestral score in a template to simplify starting a new orchestra score. In this score, for all layouts, I’ve added an Alfaia instrument renamed to Chords for inputting chords, and a Pianoforte one renamed Ideas for laying down ideas before moving them to the real score. To this piano instrument I’ve added 2 more staves to cover very low and very high parts of the audio range. The 2 instrument were grouped in the Gathered Materials group (see next picture), and will not be displayed in the full score, nor included in the final mix.
Now I would like to create other templates for smaller ensembles (string quartet, trio, etc.) starting from the last score written for them, and I would like to include the same Gathered Materials group from the orchestral template. Is there an easy way to do it without recreating them manually for each template?
