Changing the default player order

You can change the default order in which players’ staves appear in all layouts; for example, if your project requires an unconventional instrument order.


  1. In Setup mode, in the Players panel, select the players whose default position you want to change.
  2. Click and drag the selected players upwards/downwards.

    An insertion line indicates where the players will be positioned.


The default player order is changed. This does not change the player order in layouts with custom player orders.


You can also automatically sort players according to their type by clicking Sort Players in the Players panel.

You can click and hold or right-click Sort Players to change the setting to one of the following options:

  • None

  • Orchestral

  • Band

We recommend changing the setting to None when using an unconventional default player order.
