Rehearsal Marks and Measure Numbering

• Nov 12, 2011 - 08:01

I was having the most difficult time trying to figure out how to have a score, or part, that had every measure numbered and rehearsal markings throughout. The problem I was having was that I could not remove a single measure number and insert a rehearsal mark. The result would end up with a rehearsal mark laid over the measure number, but that just looked wrong.

So then I discovered a way around it. However, I'm pretty sure this wasn't already thought of. In fact, I'm pretty sure the process of doing this was made for this reason. But I could not find any information on it. So, I created a SS walkthrough for removing a single measure number and creating a rehearsal mark.

This was done using the Musescore version 1.1

Please help! I need to add measure numbers to my score, which is due this week, and I can't figure out how! I've searched and searched, but I can't find anything besides this article, which is heavily outdated! Does anyone know how to fix this?

The measure numbering options are in Style / General / Header, Footer, Numbers. You'll see a variety of options to control which measures should be numbered automatically (eg, every measure, every 5 measures, first measure of every system, etc). You can also override the automatic setting for any particular measure by right clicking it and using Measure Properties.

Rehearsal marks are another matter, they are entered by clicking the first note/rest of the measure and pressing Ctrl+M (or Add / Text / Rehearsal Mark, or add from the Text palette).
