Bar numbers

Postby mgustavson » Tue Apr 09, 2019 1:15 pm

Hello! I have a score that has bar numbers for each measure, centered and I entered 0.5 spaces above the staff. Measures 1-8 are correct but 9 to the end are about 2 or 3 spaces too high. Why is this happening and how can I correct it? Thanks.

Let me just get my crystal ball... Hmm. Can't manage the psychic vision thing at the moment. Why don't you post the sib file? Maybe you'll get an answer.

I don't know if this is the best answer but I went into Magnetic Layout and turned it off for bar numbers and rehearsal marks. It worked. But I would like to know why some measures had the bar numbers in the correct position while other measures were too high.

Again, you need to show us the file. We can't guess these things. There could be 1001 ways that other objects on the staff are pushing numbers out of the way. If turning off magnetic layout moves them back where you want them then there is definitely a collision being avoided.
