Swap one with another symbol?

Post by OCTO » Fri Feb 21, 2020 9:28 am

Hello.

Is it possible to swap one symbol in the document with another symbol?

My copyist has done "hiding noteheads" with changing the notehead symbol into symbol at 204. However he is working on Windows, and my Windows is not working now, so I do on Mac where all prints (PDF, export, Cups,...) swap that symbol with a question mark.
It looks so bad:

The problem is that there are to many in the document. What to do?

Noteheads can be mass-changed in this window: https://usermanuals.finalemusic.com/Fin ... GNOTHD.htm
Use „Find“ - „Selected notehead2 and „change to“ - „selected notehead“ and enter the desired values.

Wonderful! That helped me a lot today.
Many thanks!
