How do I outline everything to the left?

Hi Musescore-people,

Who can help me? I would like to outline everything (notes, lyrics, etc.) from the left of the page. How do I do that?

I want to make it like the example below. I have found how to outline lyrics to the left, but then it's a bit more to the left from the notes. So I don't want it to always fill up the staff, but just stay as left as possible.

I hope someone can help me! Thanks in advance. :)


I believe you are using the wrong word. Do you mean you want each line of the lyrics to be left justified with the verse number (the 7 in your picture) offset to the left.

No, not just the lyrics but also the notes to be left of the line. If you look in the picture, the notes don't fill out the complete line. They just stay as left as possible with the lyrics unterneath.
Hopefully this makes more sense. It's complicated to explane, but I want the bars to not be evenly filled out, but just to stay as left as possible.
