Renaming players

You can change the player names of players, and reset renamed players to their default name. Player names do not appear in any layouts by default, but are used to generate layout names and appear in guide instrument labels in galley view for players holding multiple instruments.


  1. In the Players panel, select player you want to rename.
  2. In the action bar, click Player Settings Player Settings button and choose Rename Player to open the Rename Player dialog.
  3. Enter new names into 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.


This does not affect staff labels or the name at the top of part layouts. You can change the instrument names used in staff labels in the Edit Instrument Names dialog, and rename layouts to change the name that appears at the top of part layouts.
