How to highlight measures
- Select one or more measures to be highlighted.
Add a line from a palette:
Adjust the vertical position of the line so that it is halfway between the top and bottom of the area to be shaded.
- Increase "Line thickness" in the Inspector; Untick "Allow Diagonal".
Click on "Line color" in the Inspector. Select a color, then adjust its transparency in the "Alpha channel" field:
Use the end handles to adjust the length of the line;
Adjust the final position of the line, by dragging or by using the offsets in the Inspector:
Set the "Stacking Order" of the line, in the inspector, to 0, to get it "under" the staff and notes.
The modified line can be saved, if required, to a palette in a custom workspace.
