Adding and Deleting
The stave groups and staves in the file you are working with are shown in the list on the left. You can add new groups and staves using the Add Group and Add Stave buttons. To delete staves and groups, select the relevant item from the list and click the Delete button. To delete staves and groups, select the relevant item from the list and click the Delete button.
To re-order staves and groups, and to move a staff from one group to another, drag the item to the desired location.
To join two or more staves with square or curved lines, group the staves into the same group and select the appropriate line type from the Grouping Line list.
To change the properties of a staff or staff group, select it and use the section on the right to adjust the values.
Long names are used in the first line of the score.
Short names are used for the lines that come after the first line.
Each staff can be associated with an instrument independently of its group. The available instruments are shown in the Instrument list. In this list, there are qanun, ney, oud, tanbur, baglama, kemençe, violin, piano, bendir, darbuka, kudum, tambourine, sine wave and sawtooth wave options.
If the Quiet box is checked after selecting a stave, this instrument will not be played. Thus, it is possible to carry out the works by muting one (or more than one for polyphonic works) instrument in any staff.
The visual properties of the staves are available in the Appearance frame. The register of a staff is determined by the values in the Levels Above and Levels Below boxes. Levels are counted beginning from the first staff line (marked green).
These values are also used to adjust the spacing between staves. If the notation elements in one staff collides with another staff, select the problematic staff and increase one of the Levels Above or Levels Below values as appropriate to enlarge the space surrounding the staff.
The number of horizontal lines in a staff can be changed from the Staff Lines box. If the Alternating lines option is checked, one staff line every given interval will be drawn thicker than the rest.
