Clef sizes

How do you adjust the size of clefs?


Generally, you don't - MuseScore automatically knwos the proper sizes for the different clefs and the different ways they are used (full size at start of system, reduced size for mid-system changes, etc). And each music font (see Format / Style / Score) has its own versions that are the size the font designer designed them to be. Can you explain more the effect you are trying to achieve? Attaaching your score - or an excerpt at least - would help us understand and assist better.

Ah, it looks like you tried using line distance to make the staff bigger. That’: not the right setting, it has the effect you are seeing here - increasing staff size but nothing else. Instead, use Format / Page Settings / Staff space. This causes everything to scale correctly, as most measurements in MuseScore use the staff space (“sp”) as their unit.

Hi Marc, first, thanks for your presence on the forums. You've personally helped me gain more of a command of Musescore.

I'd like to have a full-size clef midway through the system. I'm creating a music exam where students are demonstrating writing modes, and I plan to use three measures for three different problems, mixing up the clefs for each. I can simply make do here, but I'm also interested in knowing how to get them the same size if possible. Thanks!
