Measure properties dialog


The Visible property allows you to show or hide the notes and staff lines for the current measure. The Stemless property allows you to show or hide all note stems for the current measure. Notes that normally have a stem such as half notes (minums) and quarter notes (crotchets) only show the note head when marked as stemless.


The Nominal duration is the time signature that is displayed on the score. You can change the Actual duration of a measure to anything regardless of the time signature displayed on the score. Normally the nominal and actual duration of a measure is identical. A pickup (upbeat) measure can have a shorter actual duration.


An "irregular" measure is not counted in the measure numbering. Normally a pickup measure is marked as "irregular". If you are using version 0.9.4 or earlier and mark a measure as irregular then you may need to save and reload the score before the measure numbers show the change.

Repeat count

If the measure is the end of a repeat you can define how often the repeat should be played.

Break multi-measure rests

This property separates a multi-measure rest at the current measure. If the current measure contains a change of time signature then MuseScore marks this property automatically.
