Changing the index of rehearsal marks

By default, the rehearsal mark sequence resets at the start of each flow. If you want the rehearsal mark sequence to continue across flows, for example, to avoid having multiple rehearsal marks with the same letter in the same project, you can change the index position of individual rehearsal marks.

Changing the index position changes the shown number or letter. For example, index position 1 appears as rehearsal mark A or 1, position 2 appears as B or 2, and so on.

You can also change the index position of a rehearsal mark to avoid showing a letter that could easily be confused with another letter or another number, such as I or O.


These steps do not apply to rehearsal marks using the bar number sequence type.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. Select the rehearsal mark whose index position you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Index in the Rehearsal Marks group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.


The selected rehearsal mark changes according to the Index value and its sequence type.

Any subsequent rehearsal marks without index changes in the same sequence follow the new index automatically. For example, if you changed a rehearsal mark from A to P, the next rehearsal mark changes from B to Q.


You can also change the sequence type of rehearsal marks; for example, if you want rehearsal mark C to appear as rehearsal mark 3.
