I have a quartet score with 2 systems per frame, and a lot of whitespace in between the systems. I decided to decorate a couple of the score pages with specific score-related images which would sit within this whitespace.
In Engrave, I created a new Custom Page Template “Default with Img”, from “Default”, and placed the image box in the center of the frame. I drew these manually on the left and right panes (not “Copy L->R”). I set a Page Template Change on the specific page I wanted. The specific page correctly showed the large X.
The final page of the score has only 1 system, so this needed a different page template to place the image at the bottom of the page. In Engrave, I created a new Custom Page Template “Final with Img”, from “Default with Img”. I set the final page of the score with Page Template Change to this new template.
In Write, in the middle of the score, I clicked on the X, to set the image. Then I realized the Image Frame needed adjustment to dimensions to better sit within the systems.
In Engrave, I edited the “Default with Img” template to better dimensions, modifying both left and right panes manually. This seems Ok. In Write, I set the image by clicking on the X, to “Image 1” ( forget if that page happened to be the L pane or the R pane, but it must have been the L pane, because…).
In Engrave, I edited the “Final with Img” Page Template to modify the dimensions. In Engrave, this template shows “Image 1” on the left pane, when it was not assigned there. In Write, I went to the final page of the score (perhaps seems to, coincidentally, be an “R” pane) to click on the X and assigned the “Image 2” to the final page of the score.
The separate template, “Final with Img”, inherited the image from “Default with Img”.
It is not clear how or if the Add New Page Template is inheriting, or not, various properties from the “Based on:” template.
The score layout is now visually looking how I want it to look, however, if the length of the score were to change (i.e. formatting causes the Page Template to use a different “L” or “R” pane) then it is strange that the “Final with Img” Page Template could suddenly print “Image 1” where it is supposed to place “Image 2”, because of this inheritance or stray reference.
Hopefully all that was clear…
I have noticed funny business with Images in Page Templates in my other scores, i.e. somehow the reference to the image is mixed up with a different image, when it was completely unexpected. But I assumed this was my error perhaps because of using the same Page Template assigned as overrides to different score pages, although overall it is not clear whether Image assignment is unique to the specific page, or unique to the Pane (i.e. “L” or “R”), or if it is global for all pages using that Page Template, or if somehow the Image becomes assigned to other later Page Templates because of creating the Template with "Based on:", etc etc…
