Stave spacing query
Posted by Michael T Currie - 04 Dec 01:48PM
Hi,

I have a client who is looking to have his score spaced as per the image I have attached. I can only seem to achieve this by dragging as the 'Stave Spacing' option in the layout tab doesn't seem to work as intended.

Perhaps there is a large oversight on my behalf, apologies in advance.

Thanks,

Michael

Spaces Between Staves on the Layout Tab DOES work. What version of Sib are you using and what operating system?

I can't see any reason why that layout cannot be achieved by appropriate settings in "Engraving Rules". You might also wish to disable staff justification.

Hi,

On any other score stave spacing works fine, only in this project it instead seems to shift the entire score's systems up or down.

I have just copied and pasted the notes into a new project and seems to have sorted it.

Thanks for your replies,

Michael

As Robin pointed out, often justification set at a high percentage will surprise people in how it functions. That may have been the culprit before you created the new score.

There is a ready made Sib SATB score template that is almost the same as that shown above. Just needs a little simple editing (staff spacing, barlines, transposition etc.).
