Renaming players

You can change the player names of players, and reset renamed players to their default names. Player names appear in guide instrument labels in galley view for players holding multiple instruments and can appear in staff labels. Player names also appear in player lists.


  1. In Setup mode, in the Players panel, select the player you want to rename.
  2. In the action bar, click Player Settings and choose Rename Player to open the Rename Player dialog.

    You can also right-click players and choose this option from the context menu.

  3. Enter new names or edit the existing names in the following fields:
    • Full name

    • Short name

  4. Click OK to save your changes and close the dialog.


The corresponding names for the selected player are changed. If you have not already renamed the corresponding part layout, its layout name is updated.

  • This does not affect staff labels that show instrument names, or the name at the top of part layouts if you have already renamed the layout. You can change instrument and layout names separately.

  • Player names you have changed no longer get updated when you change the instruments or names of instruments held by the player.
