Adding text notes to scores

How do I add text below the staff similar to the instructions for the "Getting Started" intro to Musescore


for entering text (as previously mentioned).

For generic text (as opposed to special text, like lyrics or chord names) you can use Staff text or System text. To move the text down (below the staff), you can select it and change the vertical offset in the Inspector - positive values move the text down.

Alternatively, for a more global setting you can set the vertical offset using menu item: Style -> Text -> System (or Staff). See:
