Changing the notehead design project-wide

You can change the notehead design of all noteheads project-wide; for example, if you are working on an educational project and want to show the note name in every notehead.


  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 Notehead design:
    • Default size noteheads (smaller than Larger noteheads)

    • Larger noteheads (Default)

    • Note names

    • Figurenotes© colors

  4. Click Apply, then Close.


The notehead design of all notes is changed project-wide.


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.
