Can't delete or move instrument name

Post by whalil »

When I moved the instrument name from the left side of the top staff of a lead sheet to above the first measure it gets stuck there and I can't move or delete it.
Also, I can't drag the left side of the top staff all the way to the left margin like I used to in Overture 4. It still leaves an indent of about 1.20.
Thanks,

Hi, w,

If we don't want the instrument name to appear, we can uncheck Show name in Inspector>Track:Name:display. It is not a regular text object, so we can't just delete it.

My guess as to why you can't move the left end of the top system to the left margin is that you have Show name checked and so Overture leaves room for the name at the left of the first system (even though you have actually moved it to an "unnatural" place).

Maybe.

If you would upload the score file we can take a look at the actual particulars of the situation.

Best regards,

Alan
