Hiding/Showing ledger lines

You can hide/show ledger lines on individual notes, for example, if you want to indicate approximate pitches using the relative vertical positions of notes.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the noteheads whose ledger lines you want to hide/show.

    If you want to hide ledger lines, you must also select all other noteheads in the same voice and voice column index.

  2. In the Properties panel, activate/deactivate Hide ledger lines in the Notes and Rests group of the Properties panel.


Ledger lines are hidden/shown for the selected notes.

If you deactivated Hide ledger lines for only some notes in a chord, ledger lines are also shown on all notes between the selected notes and the staff in the same voice and voice column index.
