I have a four part choir arr that I would like to copy in to a piano sheet, so it would be somewhat easier to play, can't copy it in to the new piano sheet. I try one part at a time and sometimes two, I have tried layers, it doesn't work. When I have got the soprano ok and I add the Alto it enters on the sopran staff but with F-clef notes. Or else it deletes what is there. Anyone that know what to do??

Why not post this on the Window or Mac forum? Let us know what program you are using. Also, if you could post a sample of your 4-part sheet, it would help.

Simple Entry, QWERTY keyboard. That's my system, and I'm stickin' to it.

In my attachment you can see the first staffline of a four part choir. I wold like to copy this into a 2 handed pianostaff. How do I do that?
I have tried one part at a time with layers and several other ways but no luck. Does anyone know?

Simple, although a number of steps.
1. Delete all lyrics, except under the soprano line.
2. Selection tool. Select Alto line, right click>Move/Copy layers>move layer 1 to layer 2, OK.
3. Repeat for Bass line.
4. Make sure you are in Layer 2.
5. Document menu>View Active Layer Only.
(Only the alto and bass staves should show notes.)
6. Select Alto line, drag to soprano staff.
7. Select Bass line, drag to tenor staff.
8. Document menu> Uncheck View Active Layer Only.
9. Staff tool, delete original alto and bass lines.
10. Respace staves and lyrics as necessary.
11. (I would) change the clef in the tenor/bass line to the regular bass clef, and change the names at the left of the staves.

Remember that although the notes for alto and bass are red on screen, they will print in black.
