If I’ve understood this correctly, the way to change the voice of existing notes (in Write mode) (Changing the voice of existing notes) is Edit-> Voices-> Change Voice ->.
I have a simple passage, on one staff that is shared by three voices: the first up-stem, first down-stem, and a second up-stem. To change the notes now sung by the second up-stem so that they become down-stem – without merging them with the 'first-down-stem voice’s notes – I went to Edit → Voices-> Change Voice, and tried two different ways to achieve this:
- 2nd down-stem voice
- new down-stem voice
. . . but neither changed the stem directions of that second up-stem voice.
What am I missing?
Thanks, in advance, for any tips you care to share!
