    Visible score while recording in polyphonic staff style
    I just finished watching Ski's excellent tutorial on the score editor. I'm hoping it can completely replace Sibelius and Notion 5 for me. Being a step entry guy, I'm trying to see if playing in my ideas can speed up my workflow as well as my creativity. However, I've run into a problem: I write string quartet arrangements, and I like to sketch out my ideas on a grand staff, so I've created one with 4 channels. Obviously, I need to look at what's already there when I record a new part, but despite following Ski's advice on opening a separate score editor window, and setting the link mode to off, as soon as I begin to record, it turns grey. I can get it to work if I record my part on a separate track, but that completely defeats the purpose of composing on a grand staff. Is link mode buggy, or is it just not possible to record on a track while keeping what's there visible? I have recording options for overlapping regions set to "join with selected regions", which it is also not doing - at all! I have also been experimenting with "capture as recording" which would work if it would auto join the regions - but again, it doesn't. I've discovered that I can join to overlapping regions directly in the score editor with the glue tool, but that's a cumbersome way of working. How do other people work with polyphonic staff styles? A lot of questions, hope someone can help. Nicolaj P.S: Im on OS X 10.9.5 and Logic 10.0.7
