Changing the rhythmic grid resolution

You can change the resolution of the rhythmic grid. The resolution is indicated by the note value symbol in the status bar and by the beat divisions/subdivisions in the ruler markings above the caret.

The rhythmic grid resolution is set to eighth notes (quavers) by default.

Procedure

  • Change the resolution of the rhythmic grid in any of the following ways:
    • To decrease the rhythmic grid resolution, press Alt/Opt-].

    • To increase the rhythmic grid resolution, press Alt/Opt-[.

    • Choose Write > Rhythmic Grid > Decrease Grid Resolution.

    • Choose Write > Rhythmic Grid > Increase Grid Resolution.

    • Choose Write > Rhythmic Grid > [Beat division].

    • Select a value from the Rhythmic Grid selector in the status bar.

Result

Decreasing the rhythmic grid resolution makes it finer by making the note value shorter. Increasing the rhythmic grid resolution makes it coarser by making the note value longer.

Tip

You can assign your own key commands for increasing and decreasing the rhythmic grid resolution.
