remove all measure numbers?

• Jul 11, 2016 - 06:13

Need a way to remove all measure numbers in a score (am creating a score in which each line consists of a single, autonomous drill, therefore the music is not continuous so the measure numbers are misleading).

You can make individual measure numbers invisible via the inspector, but this is utterly impractical in my case as it would mean performing the operation a great number of times. I know there's got to be a way to do this, but it's certainly not in Style | General | Header, Footer Numbers | Measure Numbers, and I can't think of anywhere else to look (and no help in the manual). Am currently setting Measure Numbers at the highest interval possible, 99, but that's a kludgy workaround.

TIA for help.

"I've tried this multiple times. I click on format, then style. I click on bar numbers and uncheck the bar numbers box. But I can't find a way of saving that change."

You may be missing the final step, which is to click the OK button at the foot of the Style screen.

There should be three buttons at the bottom of the bar numbers style dialogue: OK, Cancel and Apply to all parts. The last button will be greyed out if you are looking at the main score rather than a part. If you can't see those, you may need to move the dialogue up. The button you need to use is the OK button. There is no save button.
