Sib. 5.2: Creating a pick-up bar at beginning of piece
Posted by Peter Dupre - 05 May 09:29PM
Hello,

I'd like to know the real way of doing this. I'd also like to know how to do a short measure at the end that repeats the pickup measure at the beginning.

The simplest way to create a pick-up bar is to do it when creating your time signature: the option's right there in Create > Time Signature. You can look this up under 'Pick-up (upbeat) bars' in Help > Sibelius Reference.

To make a shorter bar at the end of the score, use Create > Bar > Other. See 'Bars and bar rests' in Help > Sibelius Reference for more information about irregular bars.
