Adjust the vertical headroom of the score display

You can adjust the vertical headroom, or the amount of blank space at the top of the score display. This can be helpful when there are notes with ledger lines extending above the staff, or chords, symbols, or text above the staff.

Adjust the vertical headroom at the top of the score

  1. Place the pointer at the top edge of the score display.

    The pointer changes to a pair of up-and-down pointing arrows.

  2. Drag up or down to adjust the vertical headroom.

You can adjust the space above or below staffs in the Staff Style window (for more information, see Staff Style window).
