Sib. 6.1: Bracketed Text
Posted by Les Hooper - 03 Jun 06:57PM (edited 03 Jun 06:57PM)
The Jazz font from Finali is the only thing I
like about their program. One reason is that there is a way to use
a handwritten looking bracket around important text instructions (eg. 2nd X only) Is there anything in inkpen that can do this or is there any move
to make that possible in the future?

Not in Inkpen, but Reprise does that very very well. You should check it out. There's even a plugin, 'add brackets to reprise text', that'll put them in for you.

Here are directions from Daniel I kept in my personal Help Files for Boxed Letters and Phrases similar to Finale.

The Reprise plugin can enclose three sides of Text leaving the Bottom or the Top open.

See screenshots.

Yes you can, and below in an example as score and as screenshot.

It is much easier to use the Reprise Text plugin . . . but you can capture both the Text and the Border in Inkpen 2 to Ideas and insert into any score that way!

Simply copy from my score.

If you need instructions on how to make the Inkpen 2 Border let me know.

Thanks Rich - that's great but the problem is that the
box from reprise is skinny and the one from finali has
a caligraphy look. I have been using their jazz font but
there are problems with it working in Sibelius at times.
In any event it would be good to know how to get it top work
with inkpen 2
Thanks
Les

As far as the Rehearsals Letter are concerned, I spent hours inputting Finale RL into Symbols in Sibelius. As you noted, they don't work correctly, especially during input.

The Reprise RL I use with Sib no client has complained about and now that I'm used to them, I am supremely happy.

THanks for your quick response Richi. I guess I'm just used to that
look from the days of carbon based copiests.
