Stave with Beat Marks

• Oct 31, 2015 - 15:32

In the Help section about Chord Symbols I see an example of a system generated by MS where the bars contain (4) oblique beat marks but I can't find how to get MS to generate such a blank system for me so that I can write chord names below the appropriate beat like in Guitar tab (and as shown in the Chord Symbols Help example).

Can anyone help me? And also how I set MS to place the chord names below the stave and not above it?

Many thanks.


1) For the slashes: Edit -> Tools -> select a measure or more, and "Fill with slashes"

2) For the chords below the staff:

- Style -> General -> Chords symbols -> change "default vertical position" eg -7,50 (as the image below)
- open the Inspector, then right-click on a chord symbol -> Select -> All similar elements -> Change the vertical offset, eg 9.00 or 10.00 sp
