Showing note names in noteheads project-wide

You can show the note name as a letter in all noteheads project-wide.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. Click Notes in the page list.
  3. In the Noteheads section, choose Note names for Notehead design.

    This does not change the notehead design of noteheads whose design you have changed individually.


The notehead design of all noteheads not overridden individually is changed to show the note name inside noteheads.


To ensure legibility, you can increase the staff size of layouts in your project.
