G Clef for a melody stem

Post by antan437 » Sat Nov 14, 2015 1:42 am

I am new with Finale SongWriter 2012 with Windows. I write songs and I want to print only the melody and the words. You now when printing like this we need 5 or six or + stems begining with a G Clef, and not attached to the other stems.
I start with Lead Sheet but only the first stem has a G Clef. In the lessons I never find how to put a G Clef on the bigining of the second stem without tying it to the next stem.
Please tell me how to do it.
I hope you understand my poor english writing.
Thank you for your help. Grand Merci !

Welcome to the forum.

Instead of starting with the Lead Sheet, use the Setup Wizard. Skip the first screen. On the second, choose Blank Staff from the list of instruments. Go through the rest of the windows to add title information, and key and time signatures.

This will give you the clef on every staff.
