Rehearsal marks 2022-10-24 07:06 am Experienced users, ignore this. You have your own methods.New users, when you're writing a chart you may want to use rehearsal numbers or letters. Generally I create these as text entries, in UserFont1, set to Boxmarks2, Bold, Size 16 (use the Page Setup/Fonts submenu for this). I place them at the beginning of their respective bars, right-justified to appear above the preceding bar line. When the staff wraps when printing, the rehearsal mark will be at the beginning of the new staff instead of orphaned at the end of the previous staff I also set them to Visibility=Top Staff Only so they don't clutter up a multiple part score, but I usually enter them on all the parts so they're there when I go to print separate instrument parts. You can get away with entering each rehearal mark once only if you put them in a staff full of rests at the top of your score, but there are pros and cons to that.Alphabetic rehearsal letters are simply a matter of adding a capital letter. With Boxmark2, it will show inside a rectangular box. Numeric rehearsal marks are a little more complicated. You need to use the Character Map and select one element at a time. Start with the [ bracket. Then select the numeral(s) you want using the Character Map. Choose the numbers that have horizontal lines above and below it. Finally end with the ] bracket. Your number will be entered as a boxed number, and can be 1, 2, 3 or even more characters long.It's tedious to enter a lot of numeric rehearsal marks because you need the Character Map, so I usually create a supersized one at the very beginning of the staff, with this text string:123456789012345678901234567890 . When I need to add a rehearsal number, I just copy that to the appropriate bar and edit the copy to remove the numbers I don't want. It saves a lot of time and work if your piece is 300 or more bars long.
