Cross-staff notation

    In piano scores, it is common to use both staves (bass and treble clef) to write a musical phrase.

    This can be entered in MuseScore as follows:

    Enter all notes in one staff:

    Beamed notes in upper staff

    Ctrl+Shift+ moves the selected note, or chord to the next staff (Mac: +Shift+.)

    Selected note moved to lower staff

    If you want to move the beam, double-click the beam to show the handles. Drag the handles to adjust the layout.
