Hello. I have the instructions for make a slashes w/cues staff style and they work but it's cumbersome. On every new piece of music I have to recreate all of the steps to make the style then go through the single pitch and move rests steps. Would you guys please make a permanent slashes w/cues staff style?

I know you have consider all possible permutations of cue notes but my main concern is cues on the drum staff. It would be really nice when copying cues to a drum staff to have the single note selection default to the first ledger line above the drum staff (A5) and move the rests accordingly.

An additional problem:  I copied the cues from one measure on the drum staff to another to save some of the steps. The copy worked and kept the note/rest positions but I had to resize the notes with the "resize note head plugin" then had to resize all of the rests individually. It seems the attributes of the copied notes should carry over with the copy.   Alex H. replied to my original problem report and suggested a work around for this problem but a better solution is to retain the attributes on a copy/paste.

Thanks for listening!

Gordon,

 

Until MM implements your request, for now you can save your custom staff style(s) as a library and load that library into any files that need it. If you work from a template, then load this into your template and this staff style will be ready to go.
