Changing layout names

Layout names are used to identify individual layouts, for example, as the name at the top of parts. You can change the layout names of players, and reset renamed players to their default name.


Layout names are not used for staff labels. Staff labels use the name set for each instrument in the Edit Instrument Names dialog.


  1. In the Layouts panel, select the name of the player whose layout name you want to change.
  2. Open the layout name text field in any of the following ways:
    • Double-click anywhere in the layout card.

    • Right-click in the layout card and choose Rename from the context menu.

  3. Enter a new name, or click Reset to Default to revert the name to the player name.
  4. Press Return.


The layout name of the selected player is changed, or reverted to the default name.


This does not change the staff label that appears in the score. You can change the name used for staff labels in the Edit Instrument Names dialog, and change the layout name for the names at the top of parts.
