Violin Positions

• May 14, 2015 - 18:28

Hey all! I am wondering if there is a way to put violin position Roman numerals into musescore. For example, III Position or V Position. This goes underneath the measure and the notes.


I would either add it as Lyrics or as Staff Text - in the latter case, you would then select the markings and use the Inspector to move them below the staff, or perhaps change the text style to one that defaults to below the staff, or create your own custom text style.

I'd enter them as Stave Text then right-click and adjust Text Properties so that Offset, Vertical was 5.0 or 6.0 or thereabouts. Then create a custom palette and drag your new markings over to that palette.

I've attached a Violin_Fingering palette that I just knocked together in a couple of minutes. Save it somewhere then set your Workspace to Custom and load that palette into it. I don't know where the palette files are kept for various OS's but on my system (xubuntu 15.04) they're in /home//.local/share/data/MuseScore/MuscScoreDevelopment/profiles.
