Assigning players to frame chains

You can change which players are included in each frame chain, for example, if you are writing a piano duet and only want to show one piano on left pages and the other piano on right pages.

  • You can assign players to both master page frame chains and layout frame chains. However, you can only change the players assigned to layout frame chains in individual layouts, and you can only change the players assigned to master page frame chains in the master page editor.

  • Changing the assigned players affects all frames in the frame chain.


  • Frames is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • If you want to change the players assigned to music frame chains on a master page, you have opened the master page in the master page editor.


  1. In a music frame belonging to the frame chain whose assigned players you want to change, click Players .
  2. In the Filter by Player list, activate each player you want to assign to the music frame.
  3. Click outside of the selector to close it.


All frames in the same frame chain are updated to display the selected players.

  • If you changed the players assigned to a master page music frame, the number of pages in the layouts to which the master page set is applied automatically updates and the casting off can change. For example, if you removed a player from the master page frame chain, fewer pages and frames might be required in the corresponding layouts.

  • The staff size is not changed automatically, meaning staves can overlap in small frames in the frame chain.
