Well, to start with the easy question first:
I opened View->Command Center
and typed "size" into the search box. The first command it stopped on was

Command: (Print)Set Overall Score Size
Choose the font size of for the score, and hence how much space it takes up.
Location: Object Menu ▶ Score ▶ Typesetter ▶ Print Layout
Internal Name: SetFontSize

which is what you want.

Your automatic slurs thing sounds weird. If you described exactly what you did (i.e. which key presses or menu items you used) it might help. You could even open the View->Scheme window, click on "Record" and then do what you do to get these phantom slurs - the Scheme window will record each instruction as you press each key/click each menu item and you could then copy and paste those instructions here.

But, it is so weird that I suspect sorting out the installation is going to fix it: Unfortunately it could also be the most difficult (needless to say Denemo does not crash!). Are you familiar with gdb? Or building from source?

Hi, I have downloaded denemo-2.2.0-0.linux-x86.tar-1 and am trying to use it on a Centos_6.9 system based on a dell Optiplex GX520 box.
I have a few of issues with an otherwise wonderful piece of software.
When using the writer I can find no way to turn off the auto sluring. Example I want to finish a bar with two a's a dotted quaver and a semi-quaver. I start the next bar with a minim a. Denemo automatically places a slur over all these notes as I write them. I do not want or need these slurs as it would obviously change the way the piece is played, making what is supposed to be three separate sounds into one.

My next problem is that the software crashes instantly if I try to do anything other than write notes. Example trying to either save or print my work results in an instant crash.

The last problem I can find is the size of the finished work. I need to make the final copy and print larger but again can see no way to achieve this.
Help please!!
