Downloadable Manuscript Paper

Seriously, it's worth pointing out that the "Linkwaregraphics" website downloadable m/s paper is formatted in 8.5" x 11" (which is a 'standard' US paper size, equivalent to (but not the same as) our A4 paper) Now, I'm certainly not an expert in this field, but I don't think it's possible to re-size for printing if you only have the free Adobe Viewer. Having said all that, mind, it will probably still print OK, but with odd margins.

I was giving a lesson the other day and needed to write an excercise out for the pupil. Could I find any manuscript paper? Could I **%*!"$(*%.

I've gotten so used to using Sibelius for writing everything that I don't posses manuscript any more!! (I think the last time I had any was back in 1990 . . . just before I got Sibelius 6 for the Acorn!).

I ended up drawing the stave by hand!!

After getting caught out in similar situations on a few occasions, I even went to the trouble of creating and printing some blank m/s paper using Finale, so that I could carry a few sheets around in my cases.

Bit bizzare, when you think about it; using a top-of-the-range, (expensive!) notational software package to create paper to handwrite music on..............

The downloadable zip file (manuscript_paper.zip) contains 4 pdf files, one of which is titled "manuscript_paper1_8.5x11.pdf".
This prints out a 12 stave A4 sheet of manuscript fine!!!

Honest :shock: :shock: :shock:

not sure Iain but there is software you can get...
"the music manuscript kit"... I have it. Will lend it you to see what you think of it.

Besides, you do have Sibelius... just print it off from that :p;-)

If you want to create anything from 1 to 12 stave, go to Microsoft Word, enable MS Line Draw and do it yourself by clicking and dragging a few times! Only takes a few minutes (I've done it myself!) and as far as I'm aware, there's no copyright on drawing lines!

Hope this helps (!)
