Changing the rehearsal mark enclosure type

Rehearsal marks are usually shown in an enclosure, which can be a rectangle, rounded rectangle or a circle. You can change the enclosure type of all rehearsal marks project-wide.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. Click Rehearsal Marks in the category list.
  3. In the Enclosure section, choose one of the following options for Enclosure type:
    • Rectangle

    • Rounded rectangle

    • Circle

    • No enclosure

  4. Click Apply, then Close.


The enclosure type of all rehearsal marks in your project is changed. The default size of the enclosure is relative to the font size of the rehearsal marks, but your padding values also determine the size and shape of the enclosure.
