Windows 10, Finale 26current

So, using Document/Edit part I can Edit System Margins for the first system only, etc, and click on the "Apply to Parts/Score..." and select which or all parts to which the edits will affect.

I can do the same with Page Layout/Page Size and with Page Layout/Systems/Edit margins, etc.

Is it possible to do the same with Titles, subtitles, etc?

Thank you!

If I understand you correctly, you are talking about page attached text blocks, added with the Text Tool, right?

 

And you are talking about editing the positioning (not the text contents), right?

 

Unfortunately a text block is by default positioned the same in score and parts.

 

To have one positioning in the score, and another positioning in the parts, use two text blocks, one for the score, and another for the parts.

Page View Style:

Looseleaf Style: Current Page Only

Zoom out so that you can see beyond the right page edge.

 

While viewing the score, drag the “score” text block to the right until it is outside the right page edge.

The text block will also move in the parts.

Since it is outside the right page edge, the text block will not print.

Hold down the Override Key (which - I think - is the CTRL key), and drag the text block back onto the score page.

Because of the Override Key the text block will not move (back) in the parts.

 

While viewing the score, position the “parts” text block at the position needed in the parts.

Hold down the Override Key, and drag the text block back outside the score page.

Because of the Override Key the text block will not move in the parts.

Hi Peter,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you on this one.

I had a little trouble discerning what you meant, then finally realized I had misread "While viewing the score, position the “parts” text block..." and tried to position the text block while viewing the part (Document/Edit Part...)

When I realized I should be in the Score view, as you clearly wrote, it all came together.

Rather strange using the "Override Key" but very effective. I had never done that before.

THANK YOU!
:-)
