Adding boxed bar numbers at the bottom of each measure throughout an entire orchestral score.

• Dec 6, 2017 - 06:11

I know how to do this one measure at a time, but gosh darn is it time consuming. Is there a method to input boxed bar numbers throughout an entire orchestral score? I would like them to appear at the bottom of the score, common practice style. See attached picture. Thank you.

  1. In Style -> General -> Header, Footer, Numbers -- place a check mark in the 'Measure Numbers' box and set 'Interval' to 1.
  2. In Style / Text / Measure Number -- place a check mark in the 'Frame' box and adjust parameters (Border thickness, Text margin) and horizontal/vertical offsets. (BTW: Zero 'border radius' makes a 'square' box around the measure number.)
