Default Printing 2 Tunes per page in BMW Gold

Help.
Being in my twilight years I am not very computer savvy and I am having trouble setting up BMW Gold to print more than one tune per page.
The first tune appears fine with title and music,but the title and details of the second tune don't show .

The music of the second tune follows directly on from the first tune without the title showing .
Please help.

Dave

What I do is write the tunes as separate files. Copy the entire code for the second tune and paste it below the first tune. Be sure to include all the coding/header information.

Hi all,


The printing in BMW is ghastley! Here is what I do.


1. Adjust it so it fits the screen.
2. Press ctrl + prtsc
3. Paste into a paint program ctrl + v
4. Crop the music
5. Paste into a document
6. Adjust margins and view (portrait or landscape


I created the band book just this way and once you have done it it's really easy!

Thanks for the prompt replies folks.
I am doing exactly what Georgian Piper and Joe Baker recommend but the name etc of the second tune does not appear.The music of the second tune follows on from the first on a new staff without any extra spacing as if it was the next part of the first tune.
The full codes of both tunes appear to be ok.
I am not quite sure I can follow John Bolt's method but will try.Failing this I suppose the next step will be to contact Robert Macneil Musicworks for help as they are the owners of the software.
Cheers

Dave

Another way is to use an "In-line note" for the titles of the additional tunes. This is one way I make sets of two, three or four tunes for our band. Three and four tunes would end up being on two pages.

Oh and once just the music is in a document as a picture I add the tune name and format it so there is an index created.
It looks very professional and I have created 3 band tune books just this way!

I’m surprised people still use BMW. ABC notation is easier, universal, has a bagpipe typesetting mode, and there are free programs (like EasyABC).

And it’ll put as many tunes on a page as will fit.
