[Solved]Key Signatures on EVERY Stave!

Post by PeteFine »

The Active Parts default to only the key signature on the 1st staff. You have to go through several menus in the Layout Panel to check a box which remedies this. If working on a large multi-staff score, you have to do this for every part. But this remedy should be the default! Orchestral parts have key signatures on every staff- every page.

Pete hello,
There is solution to your problem. Check the screenshot bellow!
You can navigate the option Key signature on all staves (enclosed in red on the screenshot)
Press and hold Ctrl keyboard button and the check, or uncheck the box to activate, or deactivate the option not only for
the particular instrument, but globally for all existing instruments simultaneously.

Greetings :-)

Thank you. That is very helpful.
However, this default is still incorrect. The Default, when producing parts for 99.9% of musicians, is to show key signatures.

The "Ctrl" solution doesn't work, at least with Ove5 5.6.3-3. You still have to to check the box on every part.

Not so with my version of Ove5 (5.6.3-2). Everything regarding key signatures works as expected with both the main score and all parts. Perhaps the latest version being used (5.6.3-3) introduced a coding issue.

Play around with this brief example a bit, if you have time.
As I understand it, I should be able to hold Ctrl and tick or untick the box on any one of the three instruments and it will change accordingly for the other two.
Not so, for me at least.

Thanks!
Frank

Hi Frank.

I loaded your example and it still works as expected for me.
If you Ctrl-tick the box all systems will show the key signatures on all staves.
If you Ctrl-untick the box all systems (except the first) will not show the key signature on all staves.
I you tick or untick the box without using the Ctrl key only the stave your cursor is in will alternately show or unshow the key signature.

I think you were right about the probable coding bug in the version I'm using.
Thanks for trying it, Merv.

It still defaults to no key signature on all subsequent staves, which is incorrect and one should not need to tick or untick anything when accessing a part. Players do not expect key signatures to be missing in their part.

This has been changed to show key signatures on all parts by default. (Newly created scores only)
