Positions of chord symbols

In layouts where chord symbols are shown, they are positioned either above all instrument staves set to show chord symbols or only above the top staff in each system.

By default, chord symbols are left-aligned with noteheads.

Alignment of chord symbols across the system

Chord symbols are aligned at the same vertical position across the width of the system by default. You can disable the automatic alignment of chord symbols within systems in Engraving Options > Chord Symbols > Position.
