max document size/ score merger

Postby ckohl16 » Wed Jan 24, 2018 5:08 pm

Is there a maximum size for merged scores? I have been trying to merge two, but the second one end up being all blank measures and rests without notes.
Here's a dropbox link to it, if anyone would like to see it.https://www.dropbox.com/s/oqdes03sr68u0 ... .musx?dl=0

I think you have forgotten that we've already answered this question in your other thread. Yes, there is a limit to the number of entries, or frames, in Finale. Whether dealing with a single file, or merging 2, once the max is reached, that's it.

So, your attempt to merge will not yield success. I believe, someone suggested in the other topic that you would have to divide larger projects into smaller segments.

Thanks. I wasn't sure if this applied to merging scores as well. So, if one had a large scale work, like a Bruckner symphony, how can they create a conductor score that has everything in one book?

Ok. So, it seems that you make multiple volumes and print them individually. Thank you for your help!

If it is important to have everything in one file, consider creating a PDF file of each volume, and merge the PDF files into one PDF file.
