Hiding/Showing flow headings

You can hide/show flow headings in each layout independently, for example, if your project only contains a single flow and you only want to show the project title. You can also hide the heading for the first flow but show flow headings for subsequent flows.


You have allowed multiple flows on the same page in the layouts in which you want to show flow headings.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-L to open Layout Options.
  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to hide/show flow headings.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog. You can select other layouts by using the selection options in the action bar, Shift-clicking adjacent layouts, and Ctrl/Cmd-clicking individual layouts.

  3. Click Page Setup in the page list.
  4. In the Flows section, choose one of the following options for Show flow headings:
    • Never

    • Not for first flow

    • For all flows

  5. Click Apply, then Close.


Flow headings are shown above the first system in each flow in the selected layouts when you choose For all flows, hidden when you choose Never, and hidden above the first system in the first flow but shown above all other flows when you choose Not for first flow.

They are automatically positioned above each flow and below the preceding flow according to the margins set for each layout.
