I’m posting this because I want to know the specifics of the differences between different layout types.
In this page of the documentation
the main characteristics are outlined. This is normally enough. The type of layout is obvious and straightforward for the majority of projects. But I’m crafting a special type of project in which the differences between full score, part and custom score don’t really matter. In order to choose the best suiting type, I would like to know more details in how they differ.
I know that:
- All parts have the same enharmonic spelling, which follow the score if not overridden.
- You may propagate settings and layouts between part layouts, but not any other type.
- Score and parts have a different set of master pages.
- You can set a default layout settings for each type separately.
Are there any other differences between types not referenced in the aforementioned page that I’m missing? May I suggest that these specific functionalities are referenced in the documentation? Because if they are, I cannot find them. (@Lillie_Harris, maybe?).
Also, is there a reason why it’s not possible to switch layout types after the fact? For instance, f I change my mind and another type would be more suitable for the kind of layout I’m making. I have no doubt there is a good reason, but I’ve already found myself in a situation where I would like to switch types.
