Changing the music frame margins in layouts

You can change the margins in all music frames in individual layouts, for example, if you want more padding at the top of music frames in part layouts containing lots of notes above the staff.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-L to open Layout Options.
  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to change the music frame margins.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog. You can select other layouts by using the selection options in the action bar, Shift-clicking adjacent layouts, and Ctrl/Cmd-clicking individual layouts.

  3. Click Page Setup in the page list.
  4. In the Music Frame Margins section, change the values for Top and/or Bottom.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


The margins within all music frames in the selected layouts is changed.
