How to change size of multi measure number

• Nov 30, 2021 - 14:49

I am trying to change the size of the number denoting how many measures are contained within a multi measure. I cannot find anything in formatting, under text formatting, that allows me to do it. The default size is far too large and bold as well. I want something less dominant.


The default size is pretty standardized - as I recall the usual rules of music engraving call for it to use the same font & size as time signature numbers. So the default really should match the size used in most published music already. Messing with it isn't really recommended, and reducing the size in particular is likely to make it harder for musicians reading the part who are accustomed to the standard size.

That said, if you do have some special reason to need unusually small numbers, you could also create a staff text with an opaque white background and place a number in that manually, then position it over the default number.
