Start measure from number other than 1

• Sep 29, 2009 - 12:23

Hi everyone. I think MuseScore is fantastic! I am new at using it, but am slowly getting used to it (it's more the fact that I don't know how to read music well that makes it difficult sometimes). Anyway, I am doing a 4 page score, and I have found that by the time I get to the end of page 3 musescore starts getting rebellious. It's almost as if musescore's memory can't handle all I'm trying to write. I have given up at page three, and have started a new score of the same piece of music but am starting on page four. I am having no problems with note entry so far. I have no title because when I print it out I simply want to to seem as if it's all one score. What I am wanting to do is begin the page numbering from number 4 instead of 1, and start the measure numbers at 36 instead of 1. I'd really appreciate it if someone could tell me how to do this.

I understand If you want to address what you think may be causing this problem. From many years experience in posting in forums I have often found people ignore what you ask and try to address the issue that's causing the problem without giving the help you are actually asking for, so, no offence, please don't neglect to tell me how to start the numbering and measures at the particular numbers I want, in the process of addressing what the problem might be.

Thanks all...

For measure number you can right click on a measure and increase the "add to measure number" widget.
For page number, I don't think it's possible :-/ But you can unclick Syle -> Edit Style -> Numbers -> page number to remove all page numbers and add your own text with a frame or by dragging a staff text.

Sorry, but it may help other people if we can reproduce your problem, can you attach the 3pages score with issues? And tell us which problem you have? What sort of computer you have also? Mac/PC, recent/old?
