There are a lot of options for controlling just how the tune is formatted. The defaults settings here give a fairly small font. Examine the settings and make any changes you wish. Then press either of the Get buttons to fetch the PS file.

Tune Index

This may be used to select a single tune from a file of tunes. If you want the entire file, use 0 (zero) for the index.

Title Match

This is used to select a title from a file of tunes. It is actually a perl pattern. Only tunes with matching titles will be included. This is used because abc files sometimes contain duplicate index numbers, or the numbers may have changed. Double-checking the title like this can make sure that we get the right tune. Don't use this if you want all the tunes in a file.

Staff Breaks

Standard line breaks
The ABC standard says that end of line is end of staff, unless the line ends with \ (backslash), which means to ignore the next end of line and append the next line to this one. Some ABC programs violate this rule, and ABC files from those programs may look strange with this setting.
Continuous line breaks
This causes the music to be treated as one long line. Staff breaks will happen at bar lines, but are otherwise unpredictable
Break at all line ends
Backslashes will be ignored, and every end of line will end the staff. This is useful with some ABC files that have a backslash at the end of every line.

Scale Factor

The scale factor controls the height of each staff. A smaller scale factor may give more (but smaller) notes on each staff. To maximize the amount of music on a page, use a small scale factor, set staff breaks to continuous, and decrease the staff separation.
