Page counting

Hi all, Regarding a publication's page count for mention on an online store, should one count just the pages with music on them, or all pages including for example a blank final verso page (owing to multiples of 4 pages in booklet production)? Also, when counting the front matter pages (expressed in...

Re: Alignment with grace notes

Thanks again, Fred.
I print on laser at 1200 and I think I'm pretty happy with the above setting having tweaked them. I have noticed that thicknesses look slightly different while viewing a PDF, too, in Mac Preview compared to Adobe PDF Viewer. Adobe seems to show things very well.
Best,
Hector.

Re: Alignment with grace notes

Hi Fred, Thanks for this suggestion about Finale line thicknesses. I have changed my thicknesses and lengths to these now (as an experiment): (All stated in EVPU's) Staff Line thickness: 2.40625 Barlines: Heavy Line thickness: 12.09375 Thin line thickness: 5 Beams Thickness: 12 Ledger Lines thicknes...

Re: Alignment with grace notes

Hi, Thanks for the replies which are very much appreciated! I've had a chance to look around and I've found a band score example in Gould p.547 which shows a "rall." aligned with the main note (as opposed to snare drum grace notes). The logic you mention, John, seems to be in evidence here. I've als...

Alignment with grace notes

In a piano piece, should the "r" of rallentando vertically line up with the first grace note or with the first main note?

Here are pictures illustrating my query:

Re: Use of capitals

Thanks, everyone, for the input. Apropos of capitals, I note the following In the Schirmer style manual (p.12): Da Capo al Fine Da Capo al Segno Da Capo senza replica or Da Capo senza Ripetizione In a similar vein, I like the look of "Da Capo con Ripetizione" for my score. Anyways, I'll keep it cons...

Use of capitals

Hi everyone, I use capital M and lower case r for "Molto rallentando", which makes sense to me as sentence case. Though, if sentence case makes sense, when I write "Da Capo", I wonder why the C is a capital... page 238 of Gould recommends "Da Capo". My score uses "Da Capo (con ripetizione)" so I am ...

Re: Tuplet bracket hooks

Thanks a lot, Fred :)
Cheers,
HP.
PS: I used the Utilities>Change>Tuplets dialog box and successfully lengthened the hooks to 18 EVPU. Having read your other thread, I might now have a go at improving the look of my tuplet numbers.

Tuplet bracket hooks

Hi everyone, Hope you are all keeping well. My Finale default for the length of a tuplet hook is 12 EVPU (or 1/2 a space). Is it just me, or does that seem a little short for a tuplet hook? Would it be wrong to make them a little longer, for example, more that 1/2 a space? Cheerio, HP. Screen Shot 2...
