How to edit grafically the 1st or 2nd Ending?

Postby BRK » Fri Apr 19, 2019 1:03 am

Hi,

Is it possible to graphically make longer vertically the 1st or 2nd Ending?
When I enter the chords in my staff (where there are Ending symbols) the endings move up.
If yes, would appreciate it any guidance or help.
Thank you

Yes, up to a point. This is how I'd do it in Sibelius 7.5:

- Select the ending type (1st, 2nd etc) in the Lines menu on the ribbon and press the Edit Lines button om the bottom right corner.
- Then press Edit... in the bottom left
- OR define a New... line based on the standard ones if you don't want all your repeats to look like the edited one.
- For the closed ending type (usually 1st) change the Hook values on the left and right. About -5 seems to work for just chord letter symbols.
- For the open ended lines just the left Hook value should do.

Normally, I don't bother with this, and just nudge the chord symbol to the right for the line to pop back into its normal position.

Hi KJ_Palmer,

Thanks for your reply
It worked.
I could edit it and also created a new/customized 1. Ending.

Thank you
