Move items on the score

Post by Rachmaninov » Thu Aug 06, 2020 3:47 am

Hello again,
I would like to move rest or little note on the score, graphically speaking, not musically speaking. There is indeed some rest which are just put on a note from another voice, I would like to move it just a little upward so everything can be seen easily.

Hi,
for moving around rests I use speedy entry. Go to the rest and move it with the mouse..

To move the rest up or down, select it, and tap the up or down arrows. To move an item horizontally, use the Special Tools > Note Position Tool.

If it's "from another voice," as you say, are you putting these different voices in different layers? That would take care of the issue automatically.
Cheers,
