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

    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 Players in the page list.
  4. In the Cues section, activate/deactivate Show cues.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


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.

  • You can hide/show cue signposts by choosing View > Signposts > Cues. Cue signposts are shown when a tick appears beside Cues in the menu, and hidden when no tick appears.
