Resizing staves

Post by jonesrgv » Wed Jun 04, 2014 12:12 pm

The manual tells me to click on the Resize tool in page view and then click to the left of a staff to bring up the resizing dialogue box. However, I can only get the Resize Page dialogue box.

I need to enter two lines of lyrics for different voices in the middle of the staff and need more room between the notes.

Most grateful for any advice.

Rather than resizing, select the Staff tool. Then, grab the handle, and drag the staff down. That will affect only that system.

If you want to change the entire score, click to the left of a staff, to select it all the way through the score. Then, dragging the handle will move it all the way through.
