Project window

You can open multiple project windows for the same or for different projects. The project window consists of several areas.

  1. Toolbar

    Allows you to access the modes, the workspace options, the Mixer, the Video window, and the main transport options.

  2. Tab bar

    In Setup, Write, and Engrave modes, the tab bar shows the tabs that are currently open. If you split the music area and open several tabs, tab groups are shown.

  3. Project start area/Music area/Event display/Print preview area

    When you set up a new empty project, this area in Setup, Write, and Engrave modes shows the project start area that allows you to add your first players. Once you have added a player or an ensemble, this area becomes the music area that shows the score or parts of the score that you set up, write, edit, and format. In Play mode, this area contains an event display that shows the effects of manipulating the playback of your score. In Print mode, the print preview area shows a preview of how your project is going to be printed onto paper or exported into a graphics file format.

    Provides notes and notations that you need to create and edit your music. Different panels contain different items and functions according to the mode.
