Hiding/Showing cues in layouts

You can input cues in any layout, but by default cues do not appear in full score layouts, as cues are normally only shown in instrumental parts. You can hide/show cues in each layout in your project independently of other layouts.

Cue signposts are shown in full score layouts by default in page view. In galley view, the cued music appears in addition to cue signposts.


  1. In Setup mode, choose Setup > Layout Options.

    The Layout Options dialog opens.

  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to hide/show cues in one of the following ways:
    • Click Select All.

    • Click Select All Full Score Layouts.

    • Click Select All Part Layouts.

    • Click Select All Custom Score Layouts.

    • Ctrl/Cmd-click individual layouts.

    • Shift-click adjacent layouts.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog.

  3. Select Players from the Category menu.
  4. In the Cues section, activate/deactivate Show cues.


All cues in the selected layouts are shown when the checkbox is activated, and hidden when the checkbox is deactivated.

If cues are hidden, signposts show where they begin.


You can hide individual cues in layouts where cues are shown, but you cannot show individual cues in layouts where cues are hidden.
