Raising/Lowering text

• Sep 27, 2017 - 07:16

It's probably in the handbook somewhere, but I haven't been able to located. Simple question:

How does one raise or lower the text "D.C. al Fine" so it doesn't interfere with the chords? Raising or lowering the chords would cause bigger problems elsewhere.




Simply by select the text, and move it where you want with arrow keys, eg (or with offset in Inspector)
Possible also with mouse, but less precise.

Also, for scores that have chord symbols on the top staff, this collision is likely to be consistent - not just in one place. So might be better to customize the Text Style for the repeat signs so that all occurrences get the same adjustment. Right click, Text Style, reduce (larger negative value) the vertical offset. You'll need to do this for each different relevant text style though - there is one for the right-aligned repeat texts and another for the left-aligned.

Thank you, everyone. I had no clue how to do that or what to look for in the handbook. This opens up a whole new world of possibilities.
