Showing differently shaped noteheads for each scale degree project-wide

You can show each degree of the scale with a different notehead design project-wide.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. In the category list, click Notes.
  3. In the Noteheads section, choose one of the following options for Shaped noteheads based on scale degree:
    • Walker 4-shape

    • Walker 7-shape

    • Funk 7-shape

    • Aikin 7-shape


The notehead design of all noteheads project-wide is changed to show a different notehead design for each degree of the scale, depending on your selection.


This does not change the notehead design of noteheads whose design you have changed individually; for example, if you changed selected notes to have diamond noteheads.
