Dealing with a large score

Post by ebjazz » Tue Aug 13, 2019 10:28 pm

Hi; Looking for advice and suggestions on how to deal with a large score.
I am composing a commission for Jazz Band (big band) and symphony.
I've doubled up on saxes and brass but now have 20 staves. In landscape that is all that fits on the default page size.
I would like to add at least 4 more staves to the score and then print it but I don't think 8" X 11" paper will handle it.
So I just found the button under Layout and increased the page size to 11x17. This looks good.
So wondering how to print this?

A common size paper some printers can handle. If you're can't, make PDF files and go to a copy shop.

Thanks. I guess it's just that easy!
