How to effectively print/ship scores and to be competitive as a publisher?

Re: Starting and running publishing business

Dear friends, in a new topic that I will start and that will continue from my last post here, I will write about perhaps the most important part but also the crucial one in the music publishing: producing the scores.

Re: Engraving in MuseScore

I am back with engraving of my violin piece. Still I am using version 2.3 since opening the document in MS3 makes the file unusable (because of to many manual edits). In a way it is a "pleasant torture", but now when I look at the score, I wonder how I would do it in Finale or Sibelius. I have start...
