Switching between layouts

If you have created several layouts in your project, you can switch between which is displayed in the music area in every mode, for example, to check individual part layouts. In Setup, Write, and Engrave modes, this changes the layout displayed in the current tab only.


You can only switch between layouts to which players are assigned.


  • Switch to another layout in any of the following ways:
    • Press Shift-Alt/Opt-] to switch to the next layout.

    • Press Shift-Alt/Opt-[ to switch to the previous layout.

    • Select an item on a staff or in the piano roll of the player whose layout you want to open and press W.


      Implicit rests are not items.

    • Select a layout from the layout selector in the toolbar.


The selected layout is opened in the music area. It replaces the layout previously open in the tab.
