MarkupPage.rg
This is a User Object for putting text on a page that is unrelated to the staves.
Titles, dedications, lyricists, copyrights, catalog numbers and the like.
Up to 9 markups can be defined from each object.
Setting the Class to StaffSig allows the markup to be repeated for subsequent pages.

An example, Danny Boy, is attached. You can view the source at: http://library.duke.edu/rubenstein/scriptorium/sheetmusic/a/a23/a2303/a2303-4-72dpi.html

Hi Rick,
as is usual with your offerings this looks interesting, but in this case I could use a little extra help understanding the settings.
E.G. in the markups you have defined they all start:
/f9.
now, I understand the /f defines the font, but what do the "9" and the numerals following the point actually do?  I tried several substitutions of the "9" but couldn't make much of the results.

Perhaps the instructional section could be a little more verbose, possibly with some examples?

9 is the ninth font in NWC's scheme of things. (User1 as it turns out). The digit after the decimal point is the Style, and additional digits affect the size.

Is there a reference for font numbers in "NWC's scheme of things"?

Several. One of them is the attached list.

Ahhhh, I was looking at the font list in Page Setup and came up short - the "Staff Symbols" and Staff Cue Symbols" aren't, of course, listed there - D'oh

Thanks mate

Another innovative object to have available in your repertoire...the example does a great depiction of an existing work.
