How do I make my music smaller?

Postby scooby » Thu May 02, 2013 1:38 am

I am extracting parts for my marching band arrangement. I have Finale Printmusic 2011 on a PC.

My piece has 82 measures, and let's just say for example I extract the snareline part.

For pieces I have played in my marching band, somehow the composer/arranger smushes everything neatly onto no more than two pages or so. My snareline part extends to four pages. All of it is 4/4 if that matters.

I am in page layout, because I figure that's where I should be, and I was wondering...

can anybody explain to me how to make the music smaller so I can fit it onto two pages?

I don't know PrintMusic, but in the "full Finale" there is a Resize Tool (icon: %).
When you are in the Resize Tool, clicking in the upper left corner of the page lets you resize everything on the page.
