Edit staff style parameters

In the style overview, do any of the following:

  • To rename a staff style: Double-click the name and enter a new name.

  • To choose a different staff style type: Click-hold the type, then choose a different type from the pop-up menu.

  • To change the size: Drag the size value up or down.

    For staff styles with multiple staffs, the size value shows “–” if the sizes of the staffs are not equal.

  • To change the transposition: Click-hold the transpose value, then choose a different value from the pop-up menu.

    For staff styles with multiple staffs, the transpose value shows “–” if the staffs have different transposition values.

  • To change the note range: Drag the Lo and Hi values up or down.

  • To set the appearance of brackets and bar lines: You can only edit this parameter for styles with multiple staffs: it lets you determine which staffs are bracketed (two bracket types are available) or connected by bar lines (only at the beginning of each staff line, or at every bar line).

    Figure. Bracket connection in the Staff Style window.

    If a staff style consists of more than two staffs, the brackets and bar lines can be set to connect only certain parts of the overall staff style—they can be interrupted in between staffs. If you want to delete any connections, grab the symbol at its end (bottom), and drag it up, until it disappears.

The voices value in the style overview is determined by the number of voices in the staff style. This can be changed in the Voice parameters section, but not in the style overview.
