harp music

• Mar 7, 2019 - 00:07

I have a arge opera transcription with harp created in Muse score 2.1 and carefully aligned the beams when an arpeggio crossed from bass to tremble clef (or one hand to other hand ) but when I opened it in Musescore 3 it doesn't line up . Is there any way to fix the format without having to change each measure by hand (there are a lot of them)

This wasn't the right way to do it, it would have been better to use the "cross-staff notation" feature (see Handbook for more info). So unfortunately it's going to be a little bit of work to fix, but not too bad.

To fix these one at a time without actually re-entering them correcting using cross-staff notation. Click a stem with the problem, uncheck "automatic placement". If there are too many for this to be feasible, it's actually pretty safe to right-click one, Select / All Similar Elements, and do it for all stems at once. Then you will need to do the same with the beams.

Again, it would have been much simpler - both in 2.1 but also in 3.0 - to have one this all using cross-staff notation rather than painstakingly manually adjusting everything. But, you'll know that for next time.
