Chapter 16.  Score Editing  >  Tool Strip Functions

Tool Strip Functions

The main function of the score’s Tool Strip is to select the note value you want to add to a score. However, it holds many more little tools to help you lay out your page. You can show or hide this toolbar by using the appropriate button in the toolbar of the Score Editor.

Insert Buttons

For starters, the first button on the left is called the Voice Selector Insert button. If a track contains more than one voice, you can select in which voice within this polyphony you want to add your note. In Figure 16.24, you can see the active staff has two voices because next to the word Insert, you have two numbers: 1 and 2. These represent the number of voices currently available in this staff. In this example, this represents the soprano and alto voices in a choir score. Stems going up are assigned to the soprano voice and stems going down to the alto voice. When you insert a note on a staff with more than one voice, you can choose to which voice the note will be inserted by selecting it through the Insert buttons.
