Changing clef

• Apr 14, 2015 - 01:07

I am working on a score that has a lot of instances where I need to change the clef from bass to treble and back and forth. I have had no problem as long as the clef change is at the beginning of a measure, but I came upon one instance where I need to change the clef in the middle of the measure. I try to drag it to where I want it, but it pops over to the beginning of the measure and changes the position of the existing notes resulting in way too many leger lines. I have not been successful trying to find anything in the handbook on this topic.

I should mention that I am using MuseScore 2.0 on Windows 7.


If you very carefully drag the clef from the palette onto a specific note, that note will be the start of the clef change. You can tell when it's in the right place to let go of it because the note head will turn blue, instead of the measure being highlighted. Alternatively, select the note you want the clef to be in front of and double-click the clef in the palette to add it.
