Shift+V always results in Accent placement below note

• Apr 13, 2019 - 17:34

Using shift+V to create accents uses automatic placement to put the accents below the notes... no matter what instrument is used. The accents should automatically be placed above the note/staff.


MuseScore follows standard engraving practice - accents go on the head side. Hence, above for downstem notes, below for upstem. It is true that some editors prefer to always place accents above the staff for unpitched percussion instruments specifically, so you can always flip those or create your own custom palette (see that section of the Handbook) that includes a suitably customized accent. I believe MDL comes with such a palette by default?
