Assigning music frames to frame chains

You can change the frame chains to which music frames belong, for example, to control what music appears in specific music frames. This applies to both master page and layout music frames.


New music frames on a page always start a new frame chain, regardless of their type.


  • Frames is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • If you want to assign music frames to frame chains on a master page, you have opened the master page in the master page editor.


  1. In the music frame whose frame chain you want to change, click Frame Chain .
  2. In the Frame Chain list, select the frame chain to which you want to assign the music frame.
    • You cannot select layout frame chains for frames in the master page editor.

    • If you do not want to use any of the available frame chains, click Unlink.

  3. Click outside of the selector to close it.


The music frame is assigned to the selected frame chain. All settings from the frame chain are applied to the frame, such as the players and flows displayed.
