Copyright Notice in Footer, How to get

• Jan 28, 2023 - 20:13

Hello Group:
I am reaching out for help. I have put together a score on Musecore 4.0.1 and with the
help available out there have figured most everything out that was needed except for one.
I am not able to get the copyright notice to show up in the Footer.
Does it only show up when you publish it on musescore?
Or am I just missing something? I have been using Format > Style> Header/Footer
Then I have added it to the footer in the Center position.
But it still doesn't show up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!


To add a copyright notice to the footer requires 2 things.

  1. The copyright notice is entered in the project properties. See
  2. The copyright meta text $C or $c is entered in one of the footer panels in Format>Style>Headers and Footers See

Have you done both of those?

If you have and are still having problems please come back and attach the score (.mscz file) you are having problems with.

My question—for Steve, or anyone who's still around—is, how do you get copyright text to appear on only the first page of a multi-page score? The only options I see are "Show on first page" (which you'd select, obviously) and "Different odd/even pages", which lets you hide it on even pages only.

Till now, I've been entering copyrights manually as Expression text, which loses its centering if the bottom music line is edited. So if anyone will explain how to do this properly, I'll appreciate it. 😊
