How to selectively position clef markings

• Mar 28, 2019 - 19:11

When changing clefs within a line (?system), and the change takes effect at the beginning of a measure, some publishers seem to position the clef marking before the bar line that denotes the beginning of the measure rather than after it. Would like to do the same using Musescore but haven't been able to figure out how.

Can someone explain?


When you drop the clef on the first note of the measure, it'll be on the righthand side of the barline attached to that note.
When you drop the clef onto the measure itself (notice the highlight whilst dragging it), it'll be on the lefthand size of the barline.

Select the measure where the clef change occurs and double click the clef in the palette. The new clef will appear before the barline. If you select the first note instead the clef will appear before it but after the barline.
