Changing when the First page template is used

You can change the circumstances when the First page template is used in each layout independently, for example, if you want to use it for the start of every flow in the full score but only want to use it for the first flow in part layouts, even when subsequent flows start at the top of the page.

Procedure

  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-L to open Layout Options.
  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to change when the First page template is used.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog. You can select other layouts by using the selection options in the action bar, clicking and dragging across multiple layouts, Shift-clicking adjacent layouts, and Ctrl/Cmd-clicking individual layouts.

  3. In the category list, click Page Setup.
  4. In the Flows section, choose one of the following options for Use ‘First’ page template:
    • Never

    • First flow only

    • Any flow starting at top of page

  5. Click Apply, then Close.

Result

  • Choosing Never means the First page template is not used for any page in the selected layouts.

  • Choosing First flow only means the First page template is used for the first page in the layout but no other pages, even if some subsequent flows start at the top of a page.

  • Choosing Any flow starting at top of page means the First page template is used for all pages in the layout that begin with the start of a flow.
