Sib. 6.x: setting the number of bars per stave
Posted by Katherine SB - 06 Dec 05:33PM

Is there a way to set a specific number of bars per line of music? I can't seem to find a way to do this. I am writing a song for beginning violin and want to line one phrase up on each line. How can I set each line to contain only 4 measures?

After you have input all your music, you can reformat it into systems by selecting certain bars and selecting Layout -> Format -> Make into System.

You can also go to Layout > Auto Breaks > System Breaks > Use Auto Breaks and use the setting of 4.

You can override the auto setting by adding system breaks manually (select a barline and hit Return), or by using some of the other mechanisms in the Layout menu.
