I am working on a score, from a set of parts. The composer (Grainger) uses what he refers to as Blue-eyed English. Instead of ‘cresc.’ (crescendo), he says ‘louden’, etc.
I am using the text tool currently to achieve this. Right now, in Engraving options, I have text to appear 1/2 space above the staff.
When I add the text, it defaults to ‘above staff’ which is OK, as most of the text I want needs to be above the staff. When I click on the ‘below staff’ option in the properties panel, it is moving the text item below the staff, but it is also colliding with some of the staff lines.
This doesn’t happen consistently, and it seems to occur more when notes go above the normal 5-line staff (ledger lines). Is there a way to prevent this? I do not see options for text below the staff in engraving options.
