Voltas : Grey Not Black Brackets

• Oct 20, 2019 - 02:25

Hi Everyone,

I'm sure this has been answered somewhere in the forums but I haven't been able to find the reference. I've written a first and second volta, one following the other, each of which contain two measures. Everything plays back fine except that the brackets for the voltas seem to be grey. Is there an easy fix for this? I'm still using 2.3.1 for this score so it might not be a problem the new version. No doubt there is an obvious solution I've missed.

What a limited picture. My guess is that you selected them and pressed v to make them invisible. Do this again and they will become visible and look black, otherwise attach a score.

Well, it worked. The change in the brackets occurs when I re-scale the score layout from 1.764 mm to 1.364 in landscape mode. I readjusted the spacing between the systems and the top and bottom margins and the volta brackets are now black and export to the PDF correctly. Thanks to everyone for your feedback.

Changing the scaling the way you did would make the lines thicker so that would be noticed when you export to PDF. This also had the effect of increasing the distance between staves. There are other options that would only increase the distance between staves but would not make the lines thicker.
