Disappearing Clefs?

Post by Rick_in_MN » Thu Apr 08, 2021 6:36 pm

Hi gang.....
I do a lot of master rhythm charts. Generally, I don't display a clef on every system to just cut down on the clutter—particularly when many of the charts are just chord slash notation. But sometimes, I need to display a clef if there's a figure I need to notate. I've noticed that when I "force-display" a clef (Clef Tool->Show Clef->Always) in say, bar 71 and later decide to add another clef earlier in the piece, the clef at bar 71 disappears. This happens consistently.

I can go back through the chart and re-insert clefs, but I'd like to avoid having the do this, because it's easy to miss these. Is there any way to prevent this from happening?

In the clef dialog screen not only choose "Always" but also a specific measure number or measure region. That way each clef you establish this way will remain visible.

Brilliant! (And obvious, now that I see it...)

Thanks MMike!
