I am trying to decrease measures on a system with lots of 1/32 notes. It is the last system in the score and OV will not let me move a measure onto another system.The option is greyed out in the Measures menu.

Hi, Peter,

Yes, I confirm that, in general, Overture will not create a new system to accommodate moving a measure out of the last system.

Cheers,

Alan

You can place your cursor in the last measure then go to Score > Increase Systems on Page then go to Measures > Decrease Measures on System. You can then delete the unwanted measures. This might work for you until the issue is resolved, or am I misunderstanding.

Thanks, Merv. I actually worked around it in a similar way... I did Measures/Insert Measure (after), and inserted a few measures, which created another system. Then I was able to do the process. Not a big deal after I realized it was easily solved. I have used the Increase/Decrease measures on system countless times but I guess I never needed to on a last system so never encountered this before.
