Transferring sib 4 files ( song charts, not audio)

Post by peteonguitar » Fri Dec 20, 2019 10:28 am

Hello,

Can anyone please advise me.

I've recently completed a book of 50 songs for beginner/ intermediate guitarists.

I need to transfer the sib 4 files to the graphic designer for him to insert into the already completed shell of the book.

Up until now, I've printed out the pages and scanned them to him but the results are very unsatisfactory and really don't match the professional design of the book itself.

He, himself cannot open any sib files his end.

All suggestions very gratefully received.

Kind regards,

Peter D.

Can you export your score in pdf format? Your graphic designer should be able to handle this format. Later versions of Sibelius include the option to export as pdf, but not sure whether sib 4 has.

If not and you use Windows 10 you should be able to 'print' drectly to pdf using Microsoft Print to PDF as the 'printer', otherwise you can download a free pdf 'printer application' such as CutePdf.
