Score with equal number of bars per line and equal width
I am quite a beginner to the MuseScore. I have installed 2.0.3 version and am doing some experiments. MuseScore is absolutely amazing.
I am trying to achieve a specific Layout style and am quite out of options--I really need a help. I am creating a score with 29 or 30 bars, depending on an exercise to practice. All notes are semiquavers (16ths) and what I'd like to have is this stave configuration:
- first stave line , 5 bars possibly equal length
- middle stave lines, 6 bars with equal widths
- last stave line, 5 or 6 bars depending on an exercise
this is what I am aming to:
Unfortunately, in real example, this is what I had:
I played with Layout -> Stretch, line breaks etc. which worked perfectly but only if I use exactly the same notes and pitch. It took me quite some time to realise that each individual note has a properties: Leading space and Trailing space. I have decreased Stretch, as well as Leading space and Trailing space to -30 for both. That gave me something close to what I would need:
but the bars are not equally spaced. Is it something what I wish possible to do in MuseScore? Am I doing it all right?
Last question. Is there any global option that could let set a template, so that further exercises I create would follow the style?
