Publish Troubleshooting

Doesn't Fit

The most common publishing issue is that the music doesn't fit on the page. This generally occurs because:

  1. The template you have picked is very small, or has a large note-size. Try picking a different template, or purchase Musink Pro to design a page template that can fit your score.
  2. You have a large number of bar links, or you have bar links connecting long bars. Remove the bar link.
  3. You have written a long text mark with offsetting text. Try rewriting the text as free text.
  4. You have a very tall bar, but have chosen a short template (such as a landscape template). Try picking a different template, or using a different clef to reduce the heights of your notes.
  5. You have a very large number of staves on the page. Try picking a portrait template with small or very small notation size. Alternatively, consider purchasing Musink Pro to design a page template which can fit this many instruments.

Fonts Are Incorrect

Some versions of Firefox do not display embedded fonts from PDFs correctly. If you are viewing the PDF in Firefox, try to view the PDF in another program.

Text Off The Page

If you have a long text mark, it is possible that it may go off the edge over the page margins, or off the edge of the page. Solutions to this problem include:

  • Shortening the text!
  • Putting returns in the text, so it is taller, but not as longer. To do this, while editing the text mark, just press the return (enter) key.
  • Deleting the text mark, and re-writing it as offsetting text, or as a series of offsetting text-marks. Offsetting text will never go off the edge of the page.
  • Placing a drop-line mark at the start of the bar holding the text, so that it appears on the next line
  • Placing a bar link between the bar holding the text and the next bar
