Centered text?

• Aug 6, 2021 - 10:11

Hi all,
Is there any way to center text above a measure? (Instead of having the text start at the left of the measure.) I want to put in numbers centered above the measures. (In order to number several repeated measures using the % sign.) I looked in the online handbook but couldn't find anything. Thanks for any help! : )


No, there is not a direct way, but there is a tricky way. For a case like this, consider adding regular staff text and positioning it manually using the arrow keys or whatever. But, you can add a repeat text like Fine or whatever, then setting its alignment to center. Repeat text is unique in that is is aligned to the measure as a whole, not to a specific time position.
