Removing a Range of Measures

Command Location: Measures Menu

The Remove Measures dialog allows you to select a range of measures for deletion from the score.

Typically, you may want to remove the empty ‘lead in’ measures which are sometimes found at the very beginning of the score. You may, however, also wish to reduce the size of a particular score, or simply remove sections which are not of interest to you.

Note that rather than removing measures from the score, you may find it more convenient to simply view a particular range of measures, using the Viewing a Range of Measures command.

If you only wish to remove one measure, say measure 5, simply enter ‘5’ in both in the ‘First’ and ‘Last’ boxes of the dialog, and only that measure will be removed.
