Aligning dynamics

You can graphically align individually selected dynamics in a row without grouping/ungrouping them, for example, if system breaks in part layouts are different to the full score layout and so require parts of different groups of dynamics to be aligned. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only or for all layouts and frame chains.


  • Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the dynamics you want to align.
  2. Choose Edit > Dynamics > Align Dynamics. You can also choose this option from the context menu.


The selected dynamics are aligned in a row with the dynamic within the selection that was furthest from the staff. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
