Cross-staff notation

In piano scores, it is common to use both staves (bass and treble clef) to write a musical phrase.

This can be entered in MuseScore as follows:

Enter all notes in one staff:

Beamed notes in upper staff

Ctrl+Shift+ moves the selected note, or chord to the next staff (Mac: +Shift+.)

Selected note moved to lower staff

If you want to move the beam, double-click the beam to show the handles. Drag the handles to adjust the layout.
