Rehearsal Marks

• Oct 31, 2016 - 09:01

Don't know where to put this, so I'll try here.

There may already be an answer, but I'm not sure what to search :)

If I'm engraving a large score for orchestra, is there a way to set 'anchor points' (My phraseology :) ) So for example I can immediately find my way to rehearsal point A, or any other rehearsal point in the score?

Hope I explained that clearly :)


I had another thought :) Is there a way of making the score jump to the 'Coda' for example.

I know if I was composing a piece of music, then the obvious place to out a rehearsal mark would be at a 'Coda' or repeat marks for example. However, when engraving for others it may be different (I suppose I could insert reherasal marks as 'place holders' and then delete as appropriate)

Anyway, just a thought :)

Stupot, you can edit a rehearsal mark. Right-click the rehearsal mark, choose Edit Element, and then type Coda in the box instead. Using this technique affects the remaining inserted rehearsal marks, but if you edit the rehearsal mark after all of them have been inserted in the score, you should be good to go. Your finished score may have the following rehearsal marks (for example), but I don't think it matters:

A, B, C, D, Coda, F, G, H, and so on...note how E is gone, but who cares? You could even edit the F to an E, the G to an F, the H to a G, and so on...

The only difference is, the Coda will look like a rehearsal mark. That only matters, depending on how much of a purist you are :).
