Add a page to an existing file?
#1
Hi there,
Been using the pro version for two weeks now and VERY happy.
- still to nag you it would be good to have the flatten and export pdf option available...

BUT now that the screen has no android info like the time etc it's relatively easy to take screen shots and recompile on the computer

My question is if I have an existing file with let's say 10 pages and I just want to add on one extra page (not a blank one, that is very obvious) does the program allow appending another page within the program?
Or do I need to do that on the computer?

Thanks in advance for the answers.

Yes, you can add another file to the existing one. This can be done through the edit song screen.

Hi,
Yes you can add another page, or another file. But this at the end and as a SEPERATE file.
So for instance you just want to place a page between page 2 and 3.
This cannot happen actually if the file comes from outside the original one.
Or am I missing something?

I have not worked out if you can do this either.
I imported a 3 page PDF and another single page, then tried to have page 1 of the first, followed by the single page, then carry on with the last two pages. I tried to load the same 3 page file again but it didn't seem to give me the option. I suppose I could duplicate it with another file name outside MS then import it.

Mike (or anyone) once you have a few PDFs or files listing for a song in the editor, is there a way to specify a specific file and a page from each when you are ordering the song's pages?
All there is is a page number field.

It seems to me bumblebee that you've hit the nail on the head.
You can import other pdf files, take a photo, even another mobilesheets format file.

BUT
each will be put in a line one after the other and NO mixing.

So the only way to add a page to a pdf file is on the computer.
I repeat as a performing musician this is really bothersome as often after a day of rehearsals the conductor, or the ensemble changes the program slightly.

When you've spent the whole day writing in dynamics, articulation and general instructions up to 40 pages of screen shots need to be made - recompiled (and respect the correct order).

Last week I'll give an example. We had a world première of Philippe Hersant's new piece http://maisondelaradio.fr/article/philip...-fournaise
During the LAST rehearsal he decided to change a WHOLE passage!
So my "workaround" instead of rescanning the page reinserting it into the score was to write his new notes on top of the existing page.

VERY SLOPPY.

I'm sorry to harp on this but 4 score on Ipad will easily flatten the pdf and therefore you can print it out, share, or in this case easily rearrange the pages even within the program.

Just curious: how did the other musicians handle this? Less sloppy?

Mike is working on a facility to export the PDFs with annotations, I think this will overcome most of the current problems.

Answer :
Old fashioned paper and scotch tape!
I was the ONLY musician of 90 using a tablet.
So in this instance the old way is still the best Dodgy

Sometimes, the old way is the best.

During rehearsal, I make performance notes with pen and paper. Quite honestly, I find this better than working direct on the tablet. It's quicker and less distracting for the other players.

I can then transfer them to the tablet in my own time.

Yes indeed, but when you rehearse until ten the bus leaves at 8 and you have barely enough time to eat and sleep it would be more convenient that the program worked better.
As I mentioned I used 4 score https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/forscore...38376?mt=8
on the Ipad from January 2014 until December when I bought an Android tablet.
Forscore easily arranges pages, flattens pdf and basically most editing or adding pages can be done within the program itself.
I had a panic situation in November with a changed program order at the last minute and Forscore worked perfectly (and much faster than my three colleagues scissors and scotch tape).
