Moving rehearsal marks graphically

You can move rehearsal marks graphically without changing the rhythmic positions to which they are attached.


Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the rehearsal marks you want to move.
  2. Move the rehearsal marks in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt/Opt-Right Arrow to move them to the right.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Left Arrow to move them to the left.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Up Arrow to move them upwards.

    • Press Alt/Opt-Down Arrow to move them downwards.


      If you want to move items by larger increments, you can press Ctrl/Cmd as well as the standard key command, for example, Ctrl/Cmd-Alt/Opt-Left Arrow.

    • Click and drag them in any direction.


The graphical positions of the selected rehearsal marks are changed.


Start offset in the Rehearsal Marks group of the Properties panel is activated automatically when you move rehearsal marks.

  • Start offset X moves rehearsal marks horizontally.

  • Start offset Y moves rehearsal marks vertically.

You can also use this property to move rehearsal marks by changing the values in the value fields.

Deactivating the property resets the selected rehearsal marks to their default positions.
