Hiding/Showing cues in layouts

You can input cues in any layout, but by default cues do not appear in full score layouts in page view, as cues are normally only shown in instrumental parts. You can hide/show cues in each layout independently.

Cues are always shown in galley view.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-L to open Layout Options.
  2. In the Layouts list, select the layouts in which you want to hide/show cues.

    By default, the layout currently open in the music area is selected when you open the dialog. You can select other layouts by using the selection options in the action bar, clicking and dragging across multiple layouts, Shift-clicking adjacent layouts, and Ctrl/Cmd-clicking individual layouts.

  3. In the category list, click Players.
  4. In the Cues section, activate/deactivate Show cues.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


All cues in the selected layouts are shown when the checkbox is activated, and hidden when the checkbox is deactivated.

In layouts where cues are hidden, they are indicated by signposts.

  • You can hide individual cues in layouts where cues are shown, but you cannot show individual cues in layouts where cues are hidden.

  • You can hide/show cue signposts by choosing View > Signposts > Cues.
