Hiding/Showing octave transpositions in cue labels

By default, octave transpositions are included in cue labels when you shift the octaves at which cues are shown. You can hide/show octave transpositions in cue labels individually, independently of your project-wide setting.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

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


  1. Select the cue labels in which you want to hide/show octave transpositions. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate/deactivate Show octave transposition in the Cues group.
  3. Activate/Deactivate the corresponding checkbox.


Octave transpositions are shown in the selected cue labels when the checkbox is activated, and hidden when the checkbox is deactivated. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.

Deactivating the property returns cue labels to your project-wide setting.


You can show/hide octave transpositions in all cue labels project-wide on the Cues page in Engraving Options.
