Notes collide with repeat sign

Postby shapsticks » Sun Nov 12, 2017 1:48 am

Hi,
I'm new to this forum and fairly new to Sibelius. I'm writing a drum set exercise that contains measures of 16 16th notes. The last 16th note collides with the repeat sign. I can live with this but would like to shift the notes forward (or whatever) if possible. Please see the attached example.
Thanks!
Mike

This is all jammed together and hard to read. The last note of every measure is on the bar line. Make sure that Magnetic Layout (in the Layout tab) is selected.

Yes, too many notes on one system. Sibelius does its best with note spacing and layout, and would not do this by default, so I'm guessing you forced it to place all the notes together like this. You could try reducing the Staff Size a bit, or accept that this many notes requires more than one system.
