Now that I have played with it for a while, I think my issue is a FONT issue
I really would like to have numbers instead of saxophones trumpets and trombones.
I was elevated to my position a month ago and I am not 100% sure what instrumentation I have.
I know total numbers but not exact instrumentation yet
So I want to be a generic as possible and as the first week of camp goes and we are doing music and basics I can plug in my instrumentation and assign numers to people/instruments.
How do I get numbers (fontwise)?
I'd like to chime in and help if I could.
It sounds like you would just like to keep all of the symbols the same on the drill but number them 1-??. In this case, you would have to do a few things. You'll have to do this with each of the main sections - winds, guard, perc. Select all performers in one of those main groups and click on the Label Edit tool ("L" in the toolbar). A window will open and the very first line will say "Label" and a space to enter information. The most simple way to do this would be to enter the number 1 and then click the + button. This will auto-number all of the positions from 1 through however many you have.
Note that this will group them in the order that the forms were drawn or were selected. You'd have to glue any fragmented forms together in order make it continuous along a certain path. And you have to glue towards whatever the first position will be. Sorry if that's confusing... but it's something for you to get started on.
If this isn't what you were looking for, then maybe we can give it another go. Try it and mess with the label feature. See if that helps.
