Break in the middle of a measure

• Dec 15, 2021 - 22:09

I engrave hymns, and it is pretty standard for there to be line breaks in the middle of a measure, so that the next poetic phrase starts on a new line with a pickup. MuseScore doesnt really let me do this though, and it either adds more measures, or then rearranges the measures I have already broken... it is a problem! Does anyone have any workarounds?
Thank you!


Click on the note where you want to break the measure and use Tools>Measure>Split measure before selected note. Add a system break to the last note of the previous (now shortened) measure.
