This question will refer to the screenshot below. I’m using divisi for the first time and am encountering a few things I can’t fix.
The beginning of my score (page 2) is two staves (sop1/sop2 on top, alto1/alto2 on bottom). Then, right at the top of page 3, both staves split into divisi. Here are my issues:
As you can see, the first note on page 3 (m17) is highlighted. I actually need different music in stave 1 and stave 2, but when I select the first note in stave 1, the first note in stave 2 automatically highlights. How do I unravel this? (The same is true of the 3rd and 4th stave.)
In m18 I see tiny numbers there (1 and 2). I don’t want them. How do I get rid of them? (I tried selecting them and opening the bottom pane, but there was no button to hide them.)
Starting on page 3, the staves now have labels (1/2/1/2). I’d like to rename these to their true voice parts (sop1/sop2/alto1/alto2) but can’t find where to do this. I presume it was done when I first set up divisi, but I can’t seem to get that dialog box back. How do I do that? (I tried going back to galley mode, clicking on various notes around this point, and choosing Staff > Change Divisi, but it never shows me the two divisions that I previously created; it only shows unison.)
P.S. Looking at my score in Galley View, I started the divisi in m18, but due to how the page break is going to affect things, perhaps it would have been better at starting the divisi in m17. Can I change this easily?
