Staves are overlapping to next page

Post by sabanova » Mon Aug 12, 2019 12:04 pm

Hi,

I am cleaning up an orchestral score.
There is a page, where the bars are somehow overlapping to the next page (see attachement).
Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks!

You (or someone) has been dragging bar lines.
Select the whole score and unlock format
[ctrl/cmd][shift]u)
followed by
[ctrl/cmd][shift]n
and immediately followed by
[ctrl/cmd][shift]p[/size]

If you've done any formatting you will lose it all.

If this doesn't solve your problem, you will need to show us the actual .sib score. (i.e. NOT a picture.)

Hi Mike,

thanks! There is nothing happening when doing these shortcuts.

What I also tried is to highlight the whole score and press R, which copies the whole score at the end.
It resolves this specific problem but I am loosing everything I did so far. I can't send the score I'm afraid… it ain't mine.

What happens if you try to drag the overlapping bar line back to the left? Or make the staff size smaller?

Here's a thought:

Go into panorama mode with the overlapping bar selected (so you can find it) Check it and the next bar in the inspector for any unusual settings.

Select the barline of the offending bar and try reset position on that.

Also, looking at that page, there seems to be an awful lot of stuff crowded onto that page. Not helped by the huge time sigs.

Other than what I have already suggested, and lacking sight of the actual score there really isn't anything I (or anyone else) can do for you. We're just guessing, really.
