[ddots-l] Re: Sibelius 3 Question

Hi Dave and all,

Yeah, thaat's why I found it quite mysterious because there weren't hidden or empty bars in my score, but perhaps they aren't reported in the score info dialog unless it's a total page.

Thanks for the cute tip on the hidden zero bar.
Cheers,
Maree

Hello Maree,

Kevin is right. No way to find out where the pages break.
You did right in using the file info dialog to get at the
number of pages.

Your question about the missing 20 bars -- Perhaps some of
these bars were hidden so not printed? Or perhaps they were
all empty bars at the end of the score? I've never had a
problem with not getting all the bars printed that are
reported in the file info dialog.

By the way you can use the Layout/Format/Make into page to
restrict a set of systems on a single page. That gives us
some control over how much gets crammed on to any given
page, but unfortunately not much feedback as to whether
things start crashing into each other.

I've heard that future Sib version (4 or perhaps 5) will
have a better algorithm for automatically adjusting the page
for best overall appearance. That should help a lot, as I
still have trouble getting the first system to not crowd out
my titles. I have to insert a hidden "0" bar in the
beginning of the music and insert a system break after it,
just to be sure I have enough white space between the chord
symbols and the title/subtitle/composer stuff.

MessageThanks, Kevin,

I also tried using the Score Info dialog and it said that
there was two pages on my score, it printed out two but
there must have been 3 pages because according to the
sighties, there should have been another 20 bars or so that
should have made a third page.  In other words my score went
up to bar 156 but somehow in the system it only recognized
up to bar 135.  Hope that's clear enough.
Thanks,
M.

Hi there,

   When I create scores in Sibelius 3, I would like to be
able to find out where the pages change so that I can
estimate how things will be laid out for printing.

   I have tried Shift+Control+G, typing in, say, 2, then
going to the okay button but it doesn't take me there.  Any
suggestions please?
   Maree
