Showing vocal staff labels in uppercase/title case

You can show the staff labels on vocal staves in uppercase letters or in title case. Many European publishers prefer vocal staves to have staff labels with capital letters, but this is not true of all publishers.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. In the category list, click Staff Labels.
  3. In the Case section, choose one of the following options for Labels for vocal staves:
    • Shown in uppercase

    • Shown in title case

  4. Click Apply, then Close.


Staff labels on all vocal staves project-wide use either uppercase letters or title case.
