Restart Bar (Measure) Numbering within a Piece of Music?

When a piece of music comprises more than one movement it is convention to restart the bar numbering at the start of each new movement.

Has anyone found a way of doing this?

Thank you.


At this moment, this feature is not yet available with the current release.

The best workaround would be to create a new Crescendo project and name it with the same work name, but with a different movement.

But we will take this into account when we consider the future features to be implemented in upcoming releases.

If you wish to make a formal suggestion to our developers, you may refer to this link:

We value your inputs and feedback.

Thank you for your continuous support.

Thank you.

Can the numbering system be adapted to allow compliance with the convention regarding bar numbers after a first time repeat / second time bar?

At the moment the system adds the number of first time bars to the number of second time bars when calculating the number of the bar immediately after the second time bar(s). 

E .g. if there are two first time bars and one second time bar, and the number of the bar immediately before the first first-time bars is X, the bar after the second time bar is shown as X+1+2 = X3, whereas convention is that the calculation should be X+1.

A further bar numbering issue.

If one inserts multiple rests in a piece using a single bar with the number of bars noted above the bar using text, how can the system recognise this?

E.g. at Bar 23, I insert 3 bars rest but, what should be noted as Bar 27 is described as Bar 24 by Crescendo.

In regard to the first questions, that is the way the program works, it cannot be modified as you mentioned. NCH Software formally takes suggestions or feedback about our products through the form at http://www.nch.com.au/suggestions/

The software will not recognize as bars the numbers you enter in a text box, you must enter the rests in a bar, there is no workaround.
