Sib. 7.5: Problem move text on title pages
Posted by Patrick O'Keefe - 08 Jan 06:27PM (edited 08 Jan 06:27PM)
In a piece for clarinet quartet I unintentionally used a House Style specifying "Tabloid" page size. I had intended "Letter" or "Concert". I noticed this after having created several frontpiece pages.

After switching to the smaller page size the frontpiece text landed in some very strange places. Stuff originally on page 3 ended up on page 2. (I would have expected the opposite.) Some of the rearranged text could not be selected to be moved. In the attached sample - the frontpiece pages plus one measure of music - an example is the line "Program notes"; I am unable to select it. The block of text following now spans pages 2 and 3. I can select the block if I click on the page 2 section but not if I click on the page 1 section.

It appears that stuff from the old page 3 can be selected only if it is on the new page 3. Is this expected behavior?

How do I deal with it if it happens again?

I coped this time by moving the text down on the tabloid page so that it was still on page 3 when converted to the smaller page size.

After changing your Tabloid into Letter (in Sibelius 8.7.2) no 'disaster' happened, only the foreseeable effect of text blocks being too big for the page. Changing Staff-size from 6.1 to, say, 4.5 sets everything back to normal with very little clean-up to do.
Perhaps what you described relates to Version 7.5?
