Re: Trumpet Piccolo transposition

I see. So was THAT the issue?
If I keep it as it is, will it work correctly (Chromatic, -7, 1)? Just curious.

Re: Can Bravura be used as it is?

Thank you.
It seems that Aruvarb is the font I will need, since I need all other symbols in one font file.
Fravura looks interesting, but as I mentioned, I need so many different symbols.... well, The Contemporary Music.... :shock:

Lyrics and Smart Shapes nightmare

Friends, Every time when I reflow measures and when it happens that one system extra is created in the middle of the document, all adjusted smart shapes (such as pedal) that go through several measures and all lyrics which baseline was adjusted is again misplaced (because the individual systems' adj...

David, what happens if you apply -7, 1?

Re: Trumpet Piccolo transposition

motet wrote:It should be -6, 2.
Actually, it looks weird. It transposes one 6th lower instead of 7th. I get many double accidentals.
Using -7 + 1 does the trick.

Can you confirm?

I use a score without key.

Can Bravura be used as it is?

Can Finale use Bravura and all symbols as it is: just to apply font change? Is that possible?
Thank you.

Re: Trumpet Piccolo transposition

It should be -6, 2. Thanks, I will try. It is so confusing. If you want to suppress the key signature, use the usual means , not the transposition. What do you mean by that? The trumpet player uses two instruments, therefore I need transposition in the middle of the piece as a Staff Style. It shoul...

Trumpet Piccolo transposition

Dear friends,
What is the intervall that I need to enter in order to transpose Trumpet Piccolo Bb?
I need it to be a non-tonal transposition (without key).
It is a Staff Style.

Re: A tool for making harmonics?

I see...

The only way is to Transpose the melody, than to "Add interval below", than to apply TGTools.

I will see if it is possible to automatise this.

A tool for making harmonics?

Friends,
Is there any tool that makes harmonics (for strings, artificial) out from notes?
For instance: for a selected phrase, choose type of harmonics (ex: perfect fourth) and than "Apply". The initial notes are erased and created harmonics of 4ths.

Re: Cautionary custom clef misplaced

I recognize this type of problem; I have had a similar problem with the percussion clef (= two solid vertical bars) as a (downscaled) cautionary clef. My first guess would that you - in the Shape Designer - should edit your custom clef, and move it vertically so that the x-axis (where y= 0) goes th...

Re: Re-measuring again and again

The JW Measure Numbers plugin might be of some use. Also, it might be worth considering waiting until the entire file is done before setting up the measure numbering, to avoid unwanted renumbering if you add measures. I think the JW plugin wiil repair the numbering if it gets discombobulated. N. Th...

I have piece that is divided in sections, each starting with separate measure number (a1, b1, ...). The problem is that if I add one measure at the beginning, all other measures are re-numbered.

Friends,

How to display in an orchestra score the repeating symbols ||: :|| only for one instrument, not others?

Is there anything like independent barlines?
