I haven’t found a way yet to select multiple non-adjacent staves that span long distances reliably yet. I was wondering if I’m missing something here? For instance, I’d like to select a 64-bar violin 1 passage and also viola, but without selecting violin 2.
I can click on the first note of violin 1, then cmd-click on the viola part, and use my select to end of system / end of flow shortcuts, but I don’t want to select only one system, or the entire flow. If I use shift-right-arrow-key it will continue with my selection for these selected staves only, but will select the violin 2 part as well. I can make a selection of violin 1 with the mouse marquee tool, then hold cmd and select the viola part - exactly what I want! However, this isn’t really practical for selecting very long passages spanning multiple pages… Galley view is an option but seems like a bit of workaround.
Is there a way to click on the first violin 1 note, hold shift, select the last violin 1 note I want in my selection, and then ‘adding’ other non-adjacent staves between the same selection by holding some sort of modifier and clicking on the other staves?
