How to assign an expression to all parts without it appearing over every stave in the score

Post by JCarli » Sun Jul 03, 2022 12:33 am

Hello! I need advice; I have markings that I want to appear in the individual parts of my document, but I want those same markings to only appear at the top of the score. How do I do this?

You mean like tempo marks? Look in the category designer at the tempo marks category.

Oh hey that worked! Thanks! I'd imported a musicxml file and so the expressions were imported into their own categories.

I've encountered a similar problem with ending boxes; although the endings have "show on all staves" checked, they don't appear in all parts.

That could be from individual staff settings; there's an Endings and Text Repeats checkbox under Items to Display.
