[ddots-l] Re: Sibelius 3 Question

Hi Maree. Thanks for the offer! Yes, please send it to me as well. I'm always print out lead sheets.
I'd love to know what adjustments you made to the standard leadsheet template. My email address is chris_s@xxxxxxxxxxxx


thanks again,

Chris
P.S. any other custom manuscripts out there?

Hello Maree,

Yes, your Jazz leadsheet template sounds nice. I use a lead sheet format
quite a bit. Could you send to my personal E-Mail at dgcarlson@xxxxxxxxxxx


Very much appreciate your offer.

Dave

Thanks Dave,

I love your Sibelius tips and your latest has certainly helped me access the
Score Info Dialog much better.


By the way I had a sighted colleague sit down with me and help me with
layout and house style issues so that now I have a pretty reliable format
for jazz fonts if this is useful to any one, I can pass on the information.
I always make it so that my first page will be 4 bars per system and 8
system per page. This is certainly reliable for lead sheets but you have to
do some arithmetic if it's a longer arrangement with multi rests.
Thanks again, and a peaceful Easter to you.
Maree
