Why do bookmarks stop me from turning the page?

❮ All Categories / Common Questions

When you create a bookmark in forScore, you can either specify an “end page” number or you can simply leave it blank. There are important differences in how forScore works depending on which choice you make.

If you leave the end page blank, the bookmark works like an easy reference to a specific page. Select it from the Bookmarks menu and you’ll go to the corresponding page, but everything else will stay the same—you can turn pages backward and forward throughout the entire score just like you’d expect.

If you supply an end page, you’ll be creating a kind of “virtual score” in your forScore library. This is intended to help people split up multiple works within a single PDF file without having to actually separate the pages into many different files. It treats a specific range of pages as a different piece in your library, so when you select it from the Bookmarks menu you’ll only be able to work with those pages. For instance, if your bookmark starts on page 3 and ends on page 5, you won’t be able to turn backwards from page 3 to 2, or forward from 5 to 6.
