The staff is too long for one measure and too short for two. How do I put the first beats on one staff and the rest of the beats on the next staff?
Select the first note you want on a new system, then add a system break. It’s in the left panel of Engrave mode (or Shift-S within Engrave mode), or if you’re in Dorico SE or Dorico Elements it’s on the Edit menu.
OMG. It’s that simple? I should have thought of that myself. I’ll try to remember to start thinking more clearly ala Dorico next time. Thank you.
