The ultimate goal in using the Score functions is to print the result on a page so that musicians can read it. When you are in Page mode, you will see a gray border appearing around your page in Page mode display (shown previously in Figure 16.23). The default settings for your printer determine where this border appears.
To change the page size and margin settings:
From the File menu, select Page Setup. The default printer setup window appears.
Set the paper size and page orientation to the desired values.
Adjust the margin values for Top, Bottom, Left, and Right.
Click the Printer button at the bottom of the Page Setup dialog box.
Choose the printer you want to work with and click OK, or edit the printer's properties and then click OK twice.
It is also possible to export a score or a portion of the score to a graphic file for editing in a graphic editing or desktop publishing software.
To export a score to a graphic file:
Make sure you are in Page mode editing.
Select in the Scores menu, Global Functions > Select Range.
In the Score window, drag a box over the range you want to export to a graphic file. You can adjust the handles of the selected range by using the Arrow tool, if needed.
Select in the Scores menu, Global Functions > Export Score.
Adjust the Resolution field to get the desired resolution for your graphic file.
Select the desired file format for your graphic file.
Type in a name for your file and select an appropriate folder in which to save the file.
Click the Save button.
If you want to export an entire page of the score, only execute Steps 48 from the previous list. You need to repeat this operation for each score page in your layout.
