Inverting colors

You can invert the colors used for music and pages in Dorico Pro, which by default shows white music on black pages. You can then customize the inverted page color; for example, to show white music on a blue background.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-, to open Preferences.
  2. In the category list, click Colors.
  3. In the Page Colors section, activate Invert colors for music (white on black).
  4. Change the inverted page color in any of the following ways:
    • Click the corresponding color preview and select a color in the dialog that opens.

    • Enter a color code into the corresponding value field.

  5. Click Apply, then Close.


The colors for music and pages are inverted in the current project and all future projects you open. Music always appears white, while pages use the inverted page color you set. This does not affect the resulting colors when exporting or printing layouts.

Deactivating Invert colors for music (white on black) returns music/page colors to their non-inverted configuration.


You can reset the inverted page color back to the default factory setting by clicking Reset .
