Chord Symbol position on Stave

• Jul 31, 2011 - 00:53

I love using Musescore but I find the Chord symbols are too high above the stave! Is there an easy way I can bring them down closer to the top of the stave?


You can change the default position for chord symbols not already entered via Style->Edit Text Style->Chordname; change the "Y" parameter to something closer to 0. For symbols already entered. you can select a chord symbol, right click, Select->All Similar Elements, then ctrl-drag.

You can also click and drag them individually, and tweak their location to perfection. I do that to get them out of the way of voltas and such, and also I offset long consecutive chord symbols vertically. That can be easier to read when they get close together.
