How to change the order of the instruments

I couldn't find this asked/answered elsewhere. In my composition, I currently have flute, marimba and a grand staff piano. They appear in that order, from top to bottom. Now I need to add another instrument and have it appear between the piano and the marimba. However, when I add a new instrument, it appears below the piano by default. How can I change the order of the instruments? I've tried grouping to see if I can accomplish the reorder, but that doesn't work. Is there an easy way to accomplish this without having to copy/paste a bunch of stuff?

    Hi Anya,

    You can change the order of the instruments in your score inside the Tracks Menu. If you tap "Edit" on the top-right, you will see handles on the staff entries, as illustrated below. Dragging these handles will get you move newly added instruments to where you want.


    We will make this capability easier to spot. If there's anything I can clarify, let me know :)
  • Thank you! That's exactly what I was looking for. I only saw the 'delete' option under 'Edit' but do see the handles now that you've pointed it out. Thanks again.
  • You're more than welcome Anya!
