## Cross staff notation

 From: Helge Kruse Subject: Cross staff notation Date: Thu, 23 Oct 2008 21:30:16 +0200

```Hello,

```
I want to write a piece that has a lot of cross staff notes. I have to switch the staff and keep care for the stemp direction. This is a repeated task and annoying.
```How can I manage this in an easy and error proof way? I attach the original to
show how it should look like.

Best regards,
Helge
