Staff Styles in Parts

Post by Arturo » Sun May 19, 2019 6:12 pm

Hi,

I don't see the same staff styles that are in the full score in the parts, is there a way to correct this ?
I didn't do the full score so I don't know which was the method

Thanks in advance,

Staff Tool.
Staff menu > Apply Staff Style To > Score and Parts…

By The Way:

It might be a good idea to enable these two options:
Staff menu > Show Staff Styles
Staff menu > Show Staff Style Names

NB:
The staff styles and staff style names will only show when you are in the Staff Tool.
Switch to another tool, and you will not see them.

That only works for applying new ones, no? I think he wants to apply existing ones in the score to parts as well. Looks like if you delete the parts and recreate them, they'll inherit staff styles from the score. Of course, all the part formatting will be lost.

How did you do it? Did you do them one at a time? You can also right-click on the bar above the staff style and pick "Use selected staff style for score and parts," but I don't see how to do a whole piece of mixed staff styles at once.

You can do a whole staff or whole score, or any number of selected measures at once. Make the selection, then in the Staff menu, there is an item to do this all at once: "Use Selected Staff Style for Score and Parts".
