How to print just some parts of a score

Post by a444carl » Wed Aug 28, 2019 8:08 pm

Hi, I would like to print out and 3 parts of a score, the Lead which contains lyrics and guitar chords, guitar notes and guitar tab without printing all the other parts. Please let me know some good way(s) to do this.

Select Parts-->Print all parts
In the list at the top of the print dialog deselect the parts you don't want to print.

Hi Mike, If you mean from the File -->Print menu, I don't have those choices in this version. I have: Print Parts ---> (then can only select the part to be printed).
Is there a way I can send you screen shots? I could be more clear then. Carl

I have the monthly paid version of Sibelius 2019.7, not the Full top of the line one.

There's a possibility that this is disabled in versions less than ultimate, although a peruse of the differences here https://www.avid.com/sibelius-ultimate/comparisondoesn't even mention printing. Have you tried [ctrl]-clicking multiple items in the list? When you initially do Print all parts, all the parts will be selected (blue background) but you can click/[ctrl]-click to choose individual parts.

To send a screenshot, use the built-in screen grabber (snip tool in Windows) and attach the resultant file using "Upload attachment" below the editing window of a post. Files can be no bigger than 1MB (so don't bother trying to take photos with a phone!). Click [add the file] after you have selected it.

I did that. But they printed out separately. I want therm to print out all together like on the score only without all the other parts.
That way I don't have to try to put lyrics on guitar rhythms that don't match the Lead vocal.

I don't think this is going to work for you to see. Please let me know if it worked.
Thanks,
Carl

OK Carl, now that you have explained what you want it's easy. Use Parts--> New part and select the instruments you want in the dialog.
This will create a new part made up of the instruments you select, which can be printed out like any other part and won't show up in the score. The crucial information you originally left out was "on the same page(s)"!
