Clefs

Päivitetty 11 kuukautta sitten

    Clefs are applied to the score from the "Clefs" palette.

    Setting the initial clef for a staff

    MuseScore automatically applies the most appropriate clef(s) for the instrument when creating a new score. You can easily change this from the score window if needed.

    Adding or changing a clef

    Add/Change a start clef

    To change a clef at the start of a system, use one of the following:

    • Select the first measure in the system and click a clef symbol in the palette.
    • Drag a clef from the palette onto the first system measure.
    • Select the clef and click a clef in the palette.
    • Drag a new clef from the palette onto the clef.

    Add/Change a mid-measure clef

    To add/change a mid-measure clef before a note, use one of the following:

    • Click on the note, then click a clef in the palette.
    • Drag a clef from a palette onto the note

    To add/change a mid-measure clef in front of a barline, use one of the following:

    • Select the following measure and click a palette clef.
    • Drag a clef from a palette onto the following measure.

    Notes: (1) “Mid-staff” clefs are always smaller than the main system clef. (2) Notes after a clef change are automatically repositioned so that they continue to sound at the original pitch.

    Delete

    To delete a clef, just select it and press Del. Note that clefs at the beginning of systems cannot be deleted.
