Moving frames

You can move individual frames around pages, including master pages, after they have been inserted. However, you cannot move frames beyond page margins.


  1. In Engrave mode, do one of the following:
    • In the music area, open the layout in which you want to move frames.

    • In the master page editor, open the master page in which you want to move frames.

  2. In the Formatting panel, activate Frames.
  3. Select the frames you want to move.
  4. Move the frames in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt-Right Arrow to move them to the right.

    • Press Alt-Left Arrow to move them to the left.

    • Press Alt-Up Arrow to move them upwards.

    • Press Alt-Down Arrow to move them downwards.


      If you want to move items by larger increments, you can press Ctrl/Cmd as well as the standard key command, for example, Ctrl/Cmd-Alt-Left Arrow.

    • Click and drag them in any direction.
