I have edited a score in the “Full score layout”, mainly flipping a few stems and adjusting the beams and I forgot that the “Set local properties” was set “Locally” and not “Globally”. Is there a way to propagate my adjustments?
Edit > Propagate Properties. It works selectively, though - it’ll only propagate the properties of selected objects, and if you’re in Write mode it’ll only propagate Write mode properties (whereas in Engrave mode it’ll propagate all properties).
Leo, a curio: do you find you’ve switched to global properties since they were added as a feature? It still throws me off, and sometimes I end up with the wrong setting. I’m so used to Propagate that I’ve stuck with local plus my key command… it’s second nature by now.
Global in Write mode, Local in Engrave mode. I’d say that applies 99% of the time.
So it would be nice if Write and Engrave mode could have separate settings.
Yep, exactly the source of my confusion. I agree with Leo that Write is usually global and Engrave is usually local, but I don’t want to have to wonder halfway through a property change which one I’m on!
I’m not picking at it, just talking out loud. Propagate has worked so well for so long I don’t even think about it anymore.
So Global/Local settings that are local to each mode? Unless you wanted them the same in both, of course.
I am stuck, I selected notes, beams, flags, measures, both in Write and in Engrave mode and hit propagate but those changes won’t propagate.
That’s what I thought.
edit: could be a preference setting to behave separately or not.
