Editing divisi staff labels

You can change the text shown in the staff labels shown at each divisi change individually, for example, if a single division in your project is significantly different to others and needs further clarification. When editing divisi staff labels individually, you can also customize the font of each label in the divisi change.


Changes made to staff labels in the Change Divisi dialog apply to all layouts. They also affect the text shown in any corresponding divisi change labels above staves, even if you had already changed the text shown in those labels.


  1. Open the Change Divisi dialog in any of the following ways:
    • Double-click the signpost of an existing divisi change whose staff labels you want to change.

    • Input a new divisi change.

  2. In the Divisions section, select the group or section whose staff label you want to edit.
  3. Optional: If you selected a group, choose one of the following staff labels to edit:
    • Full Name

    • Short Name

  4. In the Staff labels section, edit the selected staff label.
  5. Choose one of the following options for Show player or group name and Show section numbers:
    • Follow Options

    • Show

    • Hide


    Show and Hide both override your per-layout settings for staff labels in all layouts.

  6. Optional: Repeat steps 2 to 5 for other sections or groups in the divisi change.
  7. Click OK.


The appearance, length, and behavior of the staff labels in the divisi change are changed in all applicable layouts.
