Frames allow you to position your music, additional text, and graphics anywhere inside the margins of a page.

Frames are rectangular boxes that can be positioned inside the page margins that have been defined for a layout. In Engrave mode, you can see and adjust frames according to your needs. For every project that you create, Dorico provides the following frames:

  • Music frames for the first and subsequent pages that show the music from a selected layout

  • Text frames that allow you to enter text and tokens that are automatically replaced with preset information from elsewhere in your project

  • Graphics frames that allow you to load images or illustrations in a variety of formats

For every frame, you can specify constraints that define the relationship between the sides of the frame and the corresponding page margins.
