I entered a small suite from Rameau’s Pygmalion (Pigmalion in old French). I have to admit that I am doing splendidly, even make new Master Pages etc … (Although the text styles were driving me Crazy since changing the content of one frame would change it in the other pages as well if they used the same paragraph style, it took me a long time to figure out).
But I am trying to deal with page turns, and I’m going mental. I make some passages into frames (Some system spacing can get a little squishy, but it has to be done). And get everything laid out perfectly; I even add a title pages to the odd part if that helps. I can even print the part that I’m working on (the output is splendid!). However, once I do the same thing to another part, when I get back to the previous part I edited in this manner, consolidated passages that were in one frame have now split into two frames. No amount of “Locking” of “Waiting until next frame break” can change this behaviours. I’m playing a game of layout whack-a-mole. What am I doing wrong? It’s a shame, because this project is basically finished (Except for repeat lines) and this is really in the way, since I cannot use the default staff spacing at all times as it creates impossible page-turns.
So now: a gin and tonic!
