How to Skip Playback Over 1 Measure

Postby N Grossingink » Mon Dec 26, 2016 7:01 pm

I used a hidden, blank measure to modify a key signature display. How do I skip playback of the hidden measure? Anotherwords, go directly from actual m49 to actual m51?

Thanks,
N

I don't think you can. If you put the measure in there, even if it's hidden, it has x number of beats, and playback will count them.

You may have to resort to the old PrintMusic workaround: a copy of the score, for playback only, without that measure.

You could use a text repeat to make playback skip measure 50.
Since the text repeat is for playback only (and not for layout), you could hide the text repeat, or let the text be a blank character only.
