Thanks! This whole process of using voices will be something that will take some getting used to.
For example, I had experimented, which is why I posted the message. So I thought “I’ll remove the original player and start over again adding a new player and do what fratveno said” but when I deleted the original player and then added a new player there was a dotted whole-rest. And I can’t get rid of that – entering notes in what appears to be voice one leaves the dotted-whole rest floating above the staff. Entering notes in voice two worked very well, stems down while the voice one notes flipped to stems up like they should. But that rest remains floating above the staff. Selecting it and hitting ctrl-x to cut it doesn’t help. Selecting it and hitting backspace to clear it doesn’t help.
I realize it’s no big deal because this is just a small trial measure I’m working on, and I’ll be more careful in an actual project, but it would be nice to be able to select something and have the “cut” or “delete” function actually work on it.
Oh well, I’ll get the hang of this program eventually. Thanks for your reply!
