Splitting flows

You can split flows at specific rhythmic positions. For example, if you want the music from a specific bar onwards to be a new flow, separate from the preceding music.


  1. In Write mode, select a note or item at the position where you want to split the flow.
  2. Choose Write > Split Flow.


The flow is split into two flows: the existing flow, and a new flow that begins from the position of the item you selected. By default, new flows in full score layouts start on a new page in page view, and are shown on a separate background in galley view.

After Completing This Task

You can set options for each flow independently in the Notation Options dialog.
