small format sheet music

Post by Harie » Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:50 pm

Hi,

I compose marches and need to print out on small paper size. I don't know how to get it. The only format I get is A4 with a lot space between the rules. Can anyone give me a suggestion?
Thank you very much for your help.

You could have typed 'page size' in the search box at the top right of the Ribbon. The top answer to that search, when selected, allows you to choose from many preset paper sizes when setting up your piece, including one called 'Band' at 12.7 x 17.78cm. And you can also make custom paper sizes if required, to match the paper you're printing on. You could then set things how you want them in respect of staff size, positioning of titles, etc etc. And you could save all that as a Manuscript Paper.

(I'm assuming that 7.5 hasn't changed that much, if anything, in this respect from 7.1.3, which I'm using)

A good read through the relevant section of the Sibelius Reference will pay dividends, as everything is clearly explained.
