Showing note names in noteheads project-wide

You can show the note name as a letter in all noteheads project-wide; for example, if you are preparing educational worksheets.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. In the category list, click Notes.
  3. In the Noteheads section, choose Note names for Notehead design.
  4. Click Apply, then Close.


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


To ensure the note names are easy to read, you can increase the staff size of layouts in your project.
