Undo "new movement" in merged file

Post by tanyaviola » Thu Jul 12, 2018 6:48 pm

I have just merged two files (originally 2 movements) and now I would like to have them continuous...so it is one long movement. I was able to move the indentation to normal, but it won't let me move the system up to match all the other systems. It won't budge. I can move all the other systems, just not the one that was originally where the new movement started. Is there a way to bypass that or "undo" where it thinks the new movement is?

Thanks!
T.

The first system often has a different top margin. Go into page setup, and you should he able to fix it.

Page setup only shows me how it will print. I see no margins there.

I'm attaching a screenshot. You can see that the middle page, bottom system is much lower. I just want it to match the other pages but I cannot drag it up. And there's no page break so I can't delete that. That line is where the new movement originally started. But since it's all continuous now, I just want the system to all line up like the other pages.

I think Mike may have meant to say go to the Page Layout tool. If you're in that, you should see a dotted outline of the margins, which can be dragged and adjusted, or you can, while in the tool, go to the Systems > Edit Margins dialogue.

David is, of course, correct! Page Layout is what I meant. Sorry for any confusion.

And since he’s older than me, I can’t even use that as an excuse!

Try this-

In the Page Layout menu is a command called "Redefine Pages". Run this only on the page where you have the problem.
