What it does
This dialog box lets you specify how much
you want to reduce or enlarge all the music (as well as text and expressions)
on a page of your score (or many pages); if you wish, you can also change
the actual page dimensions in the process.
Page to ___%. The number in this text box specifies how much you
want to resize the page, expressed as a percentage of the original full
Margins. If you select this item, you won’t actually change the
dimensions of the page itself, only the music itself. The result is that
a different amount of music will fit on a page. (Be sure to choose Update
Layout from the Edit menu when you’re finished, so you can see the effects
of your resizing on the number of measures that fit on a line.) See Resize Staff System dialog box for an illustration.
