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,

"Our conclusion is that this is a very serious and well done piece of software.The program is fast and flawless and you'll very quick get impressive results just typing the name of the chords. The new functions are exiting and worthy to be includes in this anniversary upgrade.
We were very impressed by the MIDI SuperTracks, which is simply brilliant. It’s a function in Band-in-a-Box that's here to stay.
It's amazing that the programs feel is so fresh and innovative after 30 years. This version is better than ever and should be a in every home studio or pro studio... Congratulations with the anniversary! We love you as the ex-wife we did not know we were missing.
