Project-wide spacing gaps for clefs

You can change the minimum gaps between objects, including clefs, on the Spacing Gaps page in Engrave > Engraving Options.

The options are accompanied by diagrams to help you visualize how they affect the appearance of your music.

The following minimum values directly relate to clefs:

  • Gap after barline before clef, key or time signature

  • Gap after initial clef

  • Gap to the left of clef, cancellation naturals or grace notes before note or barline

  • Gap after clef change

Other values may have an effect on the position of clefs, but they also affect other objects.
