Score settings dialog, Staff page

The settings on the Staff page of the Score Settings dialog are local to each staff. You can have the Score Settings dialog open and select each staff in turn to make settings – just remember to click Apply before selecting another staff, otherwise your changes are lost.

If several staves share settings, you can save some time by using staff presets. Set up the staff settings for the first staff, and save them as a preset. This preset can then be applied to any of the other staves, one at a time.
