Hiding/Showing voice colors

You can show notes in different colors according to their voice, for example, to check which notes are in which voice. When voice colors are hidden, all notes appear black by default.

Voice colors are randomly assigned, meaning colors do not refer to specific voices. Voice colors are considered annotations and are not printed by default.


  • Choose View > Note And Rest Colors > Voice Colors.


Voice colors are shown when a tick appears beside Voice Colors in the menu, and hidden when no tick appears.


You can also identify voices by selecting individual notes and looking at the display in the status bar.

After Completing This Task

If showing voice colors reveals some notes are not in the voice you want, you can change their voice.
