Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I am using Allegro 2002, but this same problem occurs with Finale Allegro. At some point of entering a song, the Automatic Music Spacing and Automatic Update Layout get "turned off" and I cannot turn it back on. I really have no idea why not. I have on both of them, but they fail to respong. With the automatic Music spacing turned off I have to do a bunch of "unsatisfactory" manual music spacing. Can you help?

    this may seem dull, but I cannot find the "document menu" which has all the other things I need.

    I cannot find a usic Spacing Options" subdirectory and it is not referred to in the user manual. Is this available in Allegro.

  • tmminikel Jul 21, 2009

    One last thing...I cannot find the "Document Menu" and I can't find where it is at in the manual. Can you tell me where it is. I think I know how to do everything else from there if I can get that. Thanks

To turn on automatic music spacing:
From the Document Menu, choose Document Options, then select Music Spacing Options; make sure that Seconds and Unisons are selected in the Avoid Collision of section of the dialog box.

To turn on the Automatic Update Layout
Go into the Edit menu and you will find it

For more help, the user manual can be found at the following website link
Let me know how this turns out.

    In your document you have 5 systems.

    In each of the 5 systems "Allow Individual Staff Spacing" is toggled on.

    If you toggle it off, all the staves will display.

    The staves won't disapper again if you toggle "Allow Individual Staff Spacing" on again.

    To get these to appear again:
    When you are in the Page Layout Tool, select all systems*, and go to

    Page Layout menu > Systems > Allow Individual Staff Spacing

    Or, be a Power User:

    select all systems*, and context-click inside a system.

    The option "Allow Individual Staff Spacing" is a menu item in the context menu.

    I hope this helps and fixes your problem

    It should be at least in the newer versions which I am more familiar with, I was using an allegro 2007 manual since I don't have the older ones anymore. I hope this helps, sorry if you are still having trouble. Did you get any of it to work?

    If you tried all of the above (especially the toggling) and the document menu failed to show, then just uninstall and reinstall the program. It should be showing up. Let me know if it still fails to do so.

I bought an ipod 2gig nano with 117 songs downloaded. I like maybe 30. how can I delete the other songs?

Generally speaking, you'll clean up your iPod with iTunes to erase unwanted songs and add new songs. You have two ways to delete music from iPod with iTunes, and they can be helpful when you want to get rid of the unwanted songs. iTunes provides automatic and manual methods to help you manage the songs in your device. When you are using the automatic way to manage iPod music, every time you connect iPod to computer with USB cable, your iPod will sync with iTunes Music library. If you have your iTunes Music library organized, you can delete unwanted music from iPod with this easy method. If you want to manually edit your iPod music, you can check Prevent iPods, iPhones and iPads from syncing automatically in iTunes by clicking Edit > Preferences > Devices. Then you can manually sync the songs and playlists to your iPod with iTunes.

My ipod plays songs and i can hear the music but when i switch to radio there is no sound speakers do not work on radio..what is wrong????

Hi Fay
You need to clarify what you are saying....
Your iPod plays songs and you can hear music?
Where is sound coming from... Earphones?
How do you switch iPod to Radio....
Is there a cord connecting both together?
I would then suspect cord or connector type not matching up with radio input connector.
Connectors can be Sterio or Mono
Look at spacing on connector....
