I’ve created a paragraph style X for a special type of text expressions. I have included a few of them in my score and would like to influence their positioning globally (ideally: relative-to-staff-positioning, but absolute would be OK, too). I first investigate Engrave -> Paragraph Styles -> X. I see no positioning option there. I then realise that there might be a justification for this: most of the options presented there concern parameters of the text inside the paragraph and formatting of the whole paragraph, and not the paragraph’s positioning itself. I click on an instance of X. I see that among the Local Properties -> Common there’s ‘offset’ by means of which I can modify the absolute position of the expression. I decide to click ‘Set local properties globally’ and modify the Y offset from 0 to -2. The expression I’m modifying changes its location; however, despite the ‘global’ setting’ just mentioned, all other instances of X keep their position (and the Y offset 0). So I guess I don’t understand the ‘globality’ of the setting: I assumed it would concern all text expressions in the given paragraph style, but I was mistaken.
Could the experts here give me a hint regarding how to modify the positioning of all instances of a given paragraph style? Thanks in advance!
