Project-wide spacing gaps for key signatures

Options for spacing gaps allow you to change the minimum gaps between objects project-wide, including key signatures.

Among the available values on the Spacing Gaps page in Engrave > Engraving Options, the following minimum values directly relate to key signatures:

  • Gap after barline before clef, key or time signature

  • Gap after cancellation naturals

  • Gap after key signature

  • Gap after end repeat barline


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

On the Key Signatures page in Engraving Options, you can change the following gaps:

  • Gap between accidentals in key signatures

  • Gap between cancellation naturals
