How to remove indentation of first staff?

• Jan 21, 2021 - 17:46

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know how to remove the indentation of the first (top) staff? It is a new feature, at least to me, for version 3.6.0. Potential follow-up question: how can I have this non-indentation as the default? Thanks in advance.


uncheck Format > Style > Enable indentation on first system

Save a style file from a score in which this is set and then set that as your custom default style in preferences.

Another thought - since mnost types of music do indent by default, I'm assuming you typically write in one of the styles that doesn't. Like, for instance, lead sheets. So, instead of changing the default across all scores of all types, just save a template to your Templates folded,r then you get the indent for scores that should have it (everything else) but not for the scores created from your template.
