Hiding/Showing clefs according to layout transpositions

You can show individual clefs only in layouts that are either concert or transposed pitch. For example, due to their transpositions, some instruments require clef changes in concert pitch scores to avoid excess ledger lines, but do not require those clef changes in their transposed pitch parts.

By default, all clefs appear in all layouts.


  1. Select the clefs or signposts of clefs you want to hide/show according to the layout transposition.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Show for transposition in the Clefs group.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Concert Pitch

    • Transposing Pitch


The selected clefs only appear in layouts with the corresponding transposition. In layouts where clefs are hidden, they are indicated by signposts.

Hidden clefs have no effect on note and staff spacing.
