Best Practice Multiple Movements in One Edition

Recommended Posts

Hello Together, 

I just started getting into the MusicManager and digitizing my Scores when I stumbled over the question of how to best Organize them. 

I give the following example: 

The Cello Solo suite from Paul Hindemith contains five separate movements each being named I, II, III, IV, V. 

So my first approach was to put them all together as separate paper parts in one Edition an Label them by the same work. 

Then I found the Option for setting the Number and Name for the Movement, but figured, it can be only set for the whole Edition. 

So I made a different Edition for each Movement, Naming them "Solo Suite for Cello - I", "Solo Suite for Cello - II" etc. but that will obviously in the future generate a lot of Editions...

Also, since I scanned the whole Edition at once, for each Movement a the whole scan will be saved as source material. (Probably the best to split the scan manually before adding it to a movement, to avoid unnecessary file space. 


What is the best practice here? How do I organize things best when Importing large Editions (e.g. Handel's Messiah). I definitely want the movements separated, as I want the measure count to start at 1 for each movement, and not to have to scroll through the whole Edition for playing one Movement. 


Thanks in advance
