Default Adding blank line in BMW

It's been a while since I've fiddled with modifying music in BMW, so I've forgotten how to add a blank line. For instance, if I want some space between the title/Composer and the first line of music, what is the code?

thanks

As far as I am aware, after consulting the help text, there are only these types of text

"Title",(T,L,0,0,Times New Roman,16,700,0,0,18,0,0,0)
"Type",(Y,C,0,0,Times New Roman,14,400,0,0,18,0,0,0)
"Composer/Arranger",(M,R,0,0,Times New Roman,14,400,0,0,18,0,0,0)
"Footer",(F,R,0,0,Times New Roman,10,400,0,0,18,0,0,0)
"In-Line",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,11,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
"Fixed",(X,L,1000,1000,Times New Roman,12,400,0,0,0,0,0,0)
"Comment"

I have never seen a command to introduce a blank line, and the help text does not describe this command or a way to include non printable characters in a string.

Thanks Tom. Yeah, I looked in the book 'til my eyes crossed, and wrote to Rob, both to no avail.

I know what you can't do is a second Title line. Apparently it will only red the first one.


Try putting in Text/In Line with blank spaces, before the first line of tune. It worked for me.


Cheers! Phil

Yes!

That works great!

Thank you Phil

You can only have one of them at a time.
You can control the size of the blank space using the font size parameter.
You can put it before the
Code:
& sharpf sharpc 2_4
for example.


Like this,


Twelve point font

Code:
" ",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,12,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
 & sharpf sharpc 2_4
or 25 point font

Code:
" ",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,25,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
 & sharpf sharpc 2_4
or 50 point font

Code:
" ",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,50,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
 & sharpf sharpc 2_4
or 100 point font

Code:
" ",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,100,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
 & sharpf sharpc 2_4
or 200 point font

Code:
" ",(I,L,0,0,Times New Roman,200,700,0,0,0,0,0,0)
& sharpf sharpc 2_4

Maybe a week or so.

Rob may be on holiday, or have other business. He's not one to just blow people off. He'll write back soon, I'm sure.
