Hi everyone! as per the title I have this problem: the text frames do not follow the flow if it is moved
I have created a project with 14 flows, basically it’s a project with a repertoire (one song per flow) for something that I will have to play. some flows contain written music, other flowss contain text frames that remind me only of some details (because maybe I know the song contained in that stream well).
as the lineup has changed I had to move the last flow to a more central position. when I do this the text frames I created have ignored the flow shift and continue to be visible overlapping the music written in other streams.
I remember having this problem a long time ago, but yesterday I didn’t think about it anymore. by now I have worked this way. is there a practical way to make text frames “anchor” to the flow in which they are contained?
Yes. Actually you can have as many flow headings as you need, and manually change the flow headings in the top right panel in Engrave mode. It was extremely helpful to input text cues for the conductor before every number of an operetta
I have put text for various flows into the Other Info field. I have also created different Page Templates to help position text where I needed it. Having some of this info in Page Templates lets me change where I apply the text by changing the Page Template assignment from one page to another as the paging changes.
When the text is not going to be at the start of the flow, I tend to use staff-text (shift x) since it can be edited quite nicely (no justification yet, of course) and it sticks to the music…
This is not a simple matter!
