Fixed Measure Width

• Mar 16, 2015 - 01:01

Downloaded Version 2.0 RC. Working to create my jazz lead sheet custom templates. Cannot seem to find the option for 'fixed measure width'. Needed for the creation of 'Real Book' type lead sheets. I think I went though every page in various 'preferences' and 'layout' dialog boxes, but can't seem to find it.

Perhaps, is there a plug in that will adjust after the fact?

Adding: There are other comments to the effect that this feature doesn't, can't always work correctly. Very much understood, but it remains enormously helpful for create the kind of lead sheet that work well for jazz musicians.

Thank you,



I beieve the option was removed, since as noted, it wasn't very reliable anyhow. Meanwhile, you can manually adjust measure widths by increasing / decreasing stretch. If the score has the same numebr of measures throughout, you may be able to get the results you want by setting Style / General / Measure / Minimum measure width sufficiently large.
