Printing Marching Band size instrument Parts

Postby garmanlbowersjr » Tue Feb 12, 2019 5:07 am

I'm using Finale26 with Windows 10 and am trying to print marching band size instrument parts on my HP Laserjet 200 printer. I have contacted Finale Tech support and am getting nowhere. My printer will print two pages on one sheet sent from my word processor, but I can't get Finale26 to print two instrument parts on one sheet - my printer prints one super tiny instrument part in the upper left hand corner of the sheet and then prints the other instrument part in the same location on another sheet. Is there anyone who is using an HP Laserjet 200 printer and is able to print out marching band size instrument parts from Finale? I'm at wits end, I'm getting nowhere with Finale Tech support Help.
Thanks,
Garman

Looks like you can't combine two parts into one document. I think you'll need to do it in the PDF realm with a separate program. Or, just waste the paper.

What are the page dimensions for your parts? The standard is 6.75"w X 5.25"h–it's only possible to print 1 page on letter size, trim and waste the rest.

Seems like you could fit two such, one over the other. But Finale is not going to be able to do this.

I'm using Finale26 with Windows 10


I am surprised you can get it to print at all. At least without jumping through hoops. Get a PDF printer and go that route.

I'm getting nowhere with Finale Tech support Help.


Yeah, MM's support pretty much is the pits. It isn't Minnesota anymore! You are better off coming here for "support".
