Add bar numbers

Hi! Can't figure out how to add bar numbers (to every bar)

    Hi,

    It is currently not possible to show bar numbers on every bar. Bar numbers are typically shown at the beginning of each system.

    Currently you will have to add them manually as "Music Text" if you need them.

    I will add this as a feature request for the development!

    Thanks for your input!

  • Ok! Thank you for your answer. This detail makes me have to choose another program. I always refer to a bar number when recording. "We start from bar 53".. That's a lot of counting without numbers :) Txs again!!

    Oh, that's unfortunate.

    Although, could I ask what your genre is? We also do quite a bit of studio recording, and I can't recall seeing a score with numbers on every bar, just in the beginning of rows. And rehearsal marks for important sections.

    If this is a genre convention we have missed, that would make it easier to prioritize a feature like this!

    Thanks!

    Hi Elliot, You will usually only have to count from the start of the row, which in your case will be unlikely to be a number lower than bar 48 (see example image). This is a normal convention for any software and printed sheet music, but as Johan says, if this is a genre convention we have missed, that would make it easier to prioritize a feature like this!

  • Hi! I am surprised that this is not an issue. I always refer to a certain bar number. Another thing that I wish: Say I bounced a song from say bar 141-the end. I would like to rename the bar numbers. Change Bar 1,2, 3.. to 141,142 and so on. Both this and numbers on every bar is common basics in other pro score software. I record mostly my way of jazz, but I don't think this is about genre. Hoping for an update!

    Hi!

    I understand.

    We have not had this feature request before, so that's why it is not in there. We have really tried to not to just bloat the program with a lot of features without knowing that our users want them.

    But now it is definitely on the feature request list! Although I can't say now when it will be possible to implement.

    Thanks for helping us improve!
