different score sizes together

• Jun 21, 2021 - 15:33

From the moment I switched from Finale to Musescore there has been one element that is dearly missing in Musescore and that is different sizes of notes in bars
Let me explain. I have a score of a certain piece for piano and 4 other instruments (say bass, drums, saxophone and trumpet) or - my usuals - 2 piano's. Than it would me ideal if you could print the score for piano 1 half the size of piano2 on one page so ypu can see - globally - what the other plays but it use much less paper or, as in the example I have added the upper score line for one piano with the score of the second piano. I have taken this example from a score I copied to Finale Handel piano concerto where the orchestra is played by the second piano.
I hope one time this will be added to Musescore.

As I wrote all the time I worked with Musescore and this simple "tool" has eluded me all the time.
I promise I will publish one of my other arrangements for 2 pianos (like I did with "All the things you are") this feature I will only use for printouts and as I'm busy to publish all my 2-piano arrangements on paper this is marvelous.
But thanks for pointing out this valuable tool from Musescore. By the way do you know since when was this feature available?

Thanks for the information. If you don't know with which terms it is mentioned and if you are looking with the terms used in another app - in my case Finale - then you won't find it. To explain the picture there I had the first bar of the score for piano 2 with 50 % reduction printed over the score for piano 1 (and of course vice versa). I used the same method in Big Band scores.
Thanks again for the explanation.
