[ddots-l] Re: Score Overview in Sibelius Speaking?

Kevin,

It doesn't. It only gives us the total number of pages. 
Sometime I mess around with the staff size and spacings, 
until I see that I have 3 pages, then back off a bit to get 
back to 2 pages. Like I said, a bit of trial-and-error.

Sorry if I mis-represented the information in the file/info 
dialogs.

Dave

Dave,
The one thing I don't get is how this tells you where the 
page
breaks happen.  Am I missing something, or do you just 
divide in half,
or something?

Chris,

I'd also like a way to see how many pages there are and 
where the page
breaks occur.

There is a way to find out some of this information, 
already.

Alt-F, then I for Info. This brings up the dialog where you 
can add
title,
comments. to the file. Just Shift-Tab to get to the page 
tabs, and move
to
the next page

This page needs to be navigated with the JAWS cursor, so 
turn off Num
Lock
or use the Ctrl-JJ  to activate. It  will give you the 
number of staves
and
the number of pages. I use this a lot when I'm trying to 
squeeze some
music
down to just two pages, for example. Lots of 
trial-and-error, so
henceforth
my wishlist item of knowing where the page breaks occur.

As for the time and key signatures, I'm sure you already 
know how to use
the
triple-F5 key to get that.

Dave
