Hi All,
Re Printing 'Lead sheet' with only chords and lyrics.

Is there a way I can reduce the space between the Title and the first 4 bars of chords on the lead sheet print out. This will enable me to have the song on one page only. With longer songs, even using 10 lines to a page, It often prints out with the last four bars on a second page. This is annoying because there's lots of space both above and below the song title that would solve this.

Under "Leadsheet options | Notation options", have you tried making the Title Font percentage into a smaller value (say 50%)? That might help.

Hi Noel,
Thanks for suggestion. I've already tried that but still have large un-used space under title. Only solution at the moment is to delete 4 bar intro. The other option is to increase number of lines to print out to 12, which puts everything on one page but a bit crammed to read on the gig.

Maybe someone else will have a brainwave!

Many thanks,
