Score settings

Before you start entering notes, you need to make some initial staff settings.

There are three ways to open the Score Settings dialog:

  • Make the staff active, open the Scores menu and select “Settings…”.

  • Double-click on the rectangle to the left of the staff.

    If this does not work, the “Double-click on staff flips between full score/part” option may be activated in the Preferences dialog (Scores–Editing page).

  • Make the staff active and click the “i” button on the extended toolbar.

    For this to work, make sure no notes or symbols are selected – otherwise, clicking the “i” button may open a dialog with settings for the selected object instead.

The Score Settings dialog shows the current settings for the active staff.
