Erasing the background of text playing techniques

You can erase the background of individual text playing techniques, for example, to ensure they remain legible when crossing barlines.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the playing techniques whose backgrounds you want to erase.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Erase background in the Playing Techniques group.


The backgrounds of the selected playing techniques erase whatever is behind them, creating a blank area around each playing technique.

Deactivating Erase background returns the selected playing techniques to the default non-erased background.
