Split system?

Post by simonbiazeck » Mon Nov 25, 2019 12:37 pm

I cannot seem to join these systems. Split system is not on. Clicking on the previous barline confirms that there is no break between them, and yet I can't merge them. (see attached screen shot)

Select the bar after the break and open the inspector. Check if Gap Before Bar is set to anything other than 0. If that doesn't help, I will need to see the actual sib file (not an image).

Thanks Mike,

There is no gap before the barline - it is set at 0 when I choose the bar before the rest. I cannot attach the full file. It is too large! May I have your private email address? Please, send to it my prvate mailbox on this forum. It would be a great help!

Hi Simon.

My email address is no secret it's mike@mike-lyons.co.uk. Feel free to sned me the file. I'm going out in an hour or so (band practice) so it may get to tomorrow. Just to be clear it was bar 130 you selected, not 129?

Hi Mike,

Yes, indeed it was b. 130 I selected.

I will send it shortly.

Many thanks!

Simon.

For the benefit of others who may get a problem like this:

I fixed it by dragging the RH barline of bar 129 to the right! Very counterintuitive! Eventually bar 130 came up to join it and everything went back to normal!

The moral of this story is - if the logical thing doesn't work, try something illogical! :D
