Re: Piano Vocal score

Ok, I tried messing around with "rescore" before exporting to Sibelius... and there were some problems with lyrics formatting that were frustrating, so I am back that this of using the original export without the rescore. Oh darn... Imagine if you will... A piano intro... It should be voice 2 & 3. B...

Re: Ossia staff messes up my lyrics formatting

Diana, There are different kinds of lead sheets. I just wanted to make sure we where talking about the same thing. No offence. SIngers have deep psychological issues... I'm already having anxiety with an accompanist who is the most allergic to page turns I have ever seen. He actually announced "pag...

When you import from PS into Sib, you need to unlock format ([ctrl]a followed by [ctrl][shift]u).

Re: Piano Vocal score

I will try renaming the staves again. I think I did, but I'm a little blind on this. The beginner videos are a bit general, and my issues deal with a specific process. Will keep trying.

Re: How do I set the # of measures per system?

So, I don't have a manual. I thought if I watched the get started videos, that I would be able to get this done and that there would be a help guide like in word. ahahahaha. The joke's on me. This isn't an intuitive program at all. And they are clearly interested in selling support services and that...

Re: rescore issues

I've been confused since I downloaded these programs for a few days now! Rescore is a feature in Photoscore where it takes the initial scan and reformats it. I was thinking it was a better way of dealing with some of the issues I had with the piano into being taken as line 1 being the vocal line whe...

Re: Chord diagrams/symbols - changing formating for all?

I did notice that issue where my chord texts were read as lyrics when there was no diagram, so I then went back to Photoscore and redid that t export it yet again. I've watched the get started videos and am just not clear on some of the commands I need such as how to select all. Gah! I guess I will ...

better more intutitve options for Photoscore to Sibelius

I would love more intuitive formatting options. I am a new user and many of the things that I thinks should be intuitive are not. My great plan was to use Photoscore to make leadsheets. Here are some things that I think should be easy. Edit all chord markings at once - I should be able to select all...

How do I set the # of measures per system?

It's really quite simple. I want 4 measures per system. I'm looking for some sort of intuitive feature which allows me to set the number of measures per system and apply this to the whole document. (the music was imported from Photoscore.) I'm not getting this from watching the videos. The videos ar...

Ossia staff messes up my lyrics formatting

I seem to be having the worst problems, and ones it feels like no one else worries about. I made a leadsheet. (Yes, melody with chord markings above. I know what this is.) Added an ossia, and it totally messed up my lyrics formatting which is perfect. How can I add another staff to my leadsheet with...

rescore issues

Hi,
I decided to try the "rescore" button for kicks.

My score now has 3 measures per system. I want 4 how do I change this?

How do I select and more notes to another voice? It won't let me do anything. So frustrating. It must be me.

Re: Piano Vocal score

So, I had already tried that. Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. Staff 1 should be a vocal line, but it isn't. For 4 bars it is the right hand of the piano. After that 4 bar (1 system) intro, then I have 3 staves. Line 1 becomes vocal, and line 2 & 3 are piano. I was able to format into piano voc...
