Resetting the position of items

You can reset the position of individual items you have moved graphically, which returns them to their default position. Properties relating to the position of items include horizontal and vertical offsets, beat-relative position, and staff-relative placement.


If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. Select the items whose position you want to reset. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. Choose Edit > Reset Position.


All properties that affect the position of the selected items are reset to their default settings. For properties that are layout-specific and frame chain-specific, this only resets the position of the selected items in the current layout and frame chain.
