Measure number placement

• Dec 2, 2020 - 20:25

I have an exercise written out where I need numbers on every measure. However, they appear quite far about the staff, Y placement at -2.00. I could go through and click on every single measure number and lower it, but this will take forever. Is there a way to change the default placement of the measure numbers? Thanks!

Actually, you don't need that here, nor does it do what you want, really. That affects only existing elements, but won't affect measure numbers of measures yet to be inserted - or appended :-).

Instead, the style setting makes this the default, so it affects all measures in the score, now and in the future. So either go to Format / Style as mentioned (and from there, Text Styles / Measure Numbers), or do it the easier way - set one measure nymebr the way you like using the Inspector, then click the "Set as style" button ("S" icon) to make that the default for the score. All other measures numbers are affected instantly, whether selected or not, and new measure numbers will also inherit that same setting.
