[sib-access] Re: magnetic layout and results

Claudio,

Either in the magnetic layouts defaults, or perhaps in the style engraving 
rules, you should find something that tells Sibelius how full to make a page 
before breaking to a new page. This might help with your last 1/3 page and 
spread things out a bit.

Also have you tried using one of the plug-ins that allow control of the 
systems per page? I can't remember the name of that plug-in but I've used it 
to control the number of systems per page.

Subject: [sib-access] magnetic layout and results


Hello
I just want to tell bout the results of my magnetic layout experiences. It's
a score for piano rather crowded, many chords and often two voices per
staff. At some places the left hand sometimes has to cross over the right.
There are many long and short slurs. Most of times the long slurs are for
the first voice of the right-hand staff and the short slurs for the second
voice of the same staff. There are also irregular rhythms like triols and
ohter irregular things. various dynamics words.
End of description.
Slurs going over system breaks often cut the stem of the last note of the
line and also cut the stem of the first note of the next line. Magnetic
layout should have moved these slurs upwards. Slurs at places with irregular
thythms cross under the irregular rhythm marking; better would be to cross
above them. The spacing between staves and system could be improved; it is
most of times still too little. The score would be better be laid out on
three full pages; actually it fills two pages and a thirt of a page. Another
slur problem occurs, where the left hand crosses over the right. These slurs
also should be moved upwards. In general the slurs below are handled better
than the slurs above.
It may be, that things could be improved by making settings in the magnetic
layout options, but first I have to read about it and experiment further
more with a sighted assistant.
Regards
Claudio
