Copying property settings to other layouts/frame chains

Local properties are layout- and frame chain-specific, meaning that by default, changing local properties for an item in one layout does not affect the same item in other layouts or other frame chains. You can copy the properties set on notes and items to all other layouts and frame chains in which they appear; for example, to show gradual dynamics with the same style in part layouts after changing their style in the full score layout.


  1. Select the notes or items whose properties you want to copy to other layouts. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.

    Only the properties that are available in the current mode are copied.

  2. Choose Edit > Propagate Properties.


All properties set on the selected notes/items are copied to all layouts and frame chains in which those notes/items appear.


If you know in advance that you want your changes to affect all layouts and frame chains, you can change the property scope before changing property settings.
