Re: Does this Style of Double-Chord Notation Work?

Is there a convention for this? If so, you probably want to follow the convention. For guitar music, I don't know that I've ever actually seen a piece that designates a capo and then displays the concert pitch chords along with the capo chords. Does anybody who's going to play the piece actually car...

Re: Removing a rest that shifts entire part

Select the entire staff, from the note after that rest to the end, and drag it to the left by one beat. You will see a box around the selected group, so you can see how far to drag. This is generally easiest in scroll view. Ha! I was going to suggest that, but wanted to see what others might come u...

Re: Simple Entry: Insert notes with keyboard

Yes. You would think they would have implemented a key stroke for inserting notes between two existing notes. I guess that's where speedy comes in.

Re: Simple Entry: Insert notes with keyboard

Or you can alt-4 the second quarter note as well, repitch the next two quarters if needed and retype the 4th beat.

Still not elegant, but saves you reaching for the mouse.

I don't think there are many who notate for guitar hanging out here. I do quite a bit, but I don't usually deal with bends.

Re: How do I repeat a note/chord several times?

Layer collisions is a huge issue for me. I notate a lot of guitar music. I stopped upgrading after 2010, but finally upgraded to 25.5 based on them finally fixing one issue with accidentals in layers.

You probably need to look into something like Vienna Symphonic Library and MIDI sequencing software. Expecting a notation program to provide performance perfect playback is unrealistic.

Re: pizzicato no playback

Go to MIDI/Audio > VST Banks & Effects

Click on the edit pencil for Bank 1.

In the Aria player change instrument 3 to "Solo Violin KS 1" rather than just "Solo Violin".

"KS" after an instrument name means "Key Switches".

The note is the same in both layers. It isn't possible to play more than one instance of a note simultaneously on the same channel.
