Project window in Setup mode

You can switch to Setup mode in any of the following ways:

  • Press Ctrl/Cmd-1.

  • Click Setup in the toolbar.

  • Choose Window > Setup.

Figure: Panels in Setup mode

The following panels are available:

  1. Players

    Lists the players, instruments, and groups in your project.

  2. Flows

    Shows the flows that are created for your project.

  3. Layouts

    Lists the layouts that are created for players.

If you select or edit items on a panel, the panel and the selected item are highlighted in a different color. On each of the panels, you can activate/deactivate each player, layout, or flow to flexibly determine the following:

  • The players that take part in a flow


    If you exclude a player from a flow, any notes you have already input for that player in that flow are deleted.

  • The players that you want to show or print in an instrumental part or a full score layout

  • The flows that you want to show or print in instrumental parts or full score layouts

To verify that all the players and flows that you selected are shown in a layout, select the layout in the layout selector.
