Global Scale Tool Not Working

Post by wayne »

Scale tool does not cover ALL staves in multi-stave score by dragging as it did in earlier versions. I must click at beginning of each stave. Hitting all notes only scales notes but not staves. How do I get all staves on page to scale without clicking each one separately?

Hi,
The scale tool is just for selected notes/text/symbols etc.
If you want to scale an entire score or part select the Score Layout button at top right (Shift-A), select the Active Part tab and the Page tab in the bottom half, and use the slider to reduce the scale (i.e. fit more on the page).
However, if you want to scale just a few staves in particular places, but not throughout, I can't see any other way than clicking at the beginning of each one.
Also see the Quick Help - for instance FAQ How do I make the music smaller on the page?
Hope this helps.

Oops! Sorry Wayne, I didn't notice your problem was with Ov4. Basically the answer is the same. For the entire score, use the slider in the Page Dimensions dialog from the Score menu. Other options are described in Ov4 Help under the FAQs, How do I make the music smaller on the page?
