Erasing the background of divisi change labels

By default in Dorico Pro, divisi change labels have erased backgrounds so they do not collide with barlines if they have a horizontal offset. You can change this default setting for all divisi change labels project-wide, including changing their erasure padding.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. In the category list, click Divisi.
  3. In the Divisi Change Labels subsection, activate/deactivate Erase background with padding.
  4. Optional: If you activated Erase background with padding, change the value in the value field to change the erasure padding around divisi change labels.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.
