Project-wide engraving options for staff labels

You can find options for the project-wide appearance and position of staff labels on the Staff Labels page in Engraving Options.

For example, you can change the distance between staff labels and the systemic barline and whether instruments are numbered using Arabic or Roman numerals. You can also determine whether one instrument name for identical adjacent instruments is grouped and shown justified between their staves or shown on each staff, and whether vocal staff labels use uppercase or title case letters. There are also options specifically for ossia staff labels and staff labels on condensed staves.

There are musical examples for many options to demonstrate how they affect the appearance of your music.


You can change the length of staff labels shown on systems for each layout independently on the Staves and Systems page in Layout Options.
