MuseScore 3

• Jan 22, 2019 - 13:43

For many years I do making scores with MuseScore but now, 3.0 has changed completely in several places,
as well as the moving of text parts. In 2.3 it was possible to place a part of a verse above the notes and the sequel below it. (See example). In 3.0 I can choose whether the text should be [above] or [below] the notes.
And then the whole text of that verse is raised or lowered.
If someone knows how to put a part of the verse above the notes please let me know.

Thanks in advance.


2.x never really allowed lyrics above staff. You could move them there, with some rather large negative offset, but they still reserved space below the staff and caused collisions with stuff abobe.

Now in MuseScore 3 this just works, change them to "Above" (and reset their offsets) and there you are, no black magic with offsets and spacers needed.

But yes, migrating such carefully laid out scores from 2.x to 3.0 is quite some work

Hi, thanks for you advise. I have tried it in the way described but without the desired result. Every time, when I selected some words and use the inspector for to place text up (above] or down, the total verse is moved. And I'm just looking for the possibility to place a part of the verse above the stars.
