1-line note staff position

It is possible to create more staff position? It’s interesting for aproximatly percussion scores.image|494x126

No, for a single-line percussion instrument, you can at present only create notes on the line and in the position adjacent to the line.

Ouch… ok… Thanks

You can’t “officially” do it, but this is hackable if you don’t care about playback. Open your instruments.xml file, take an instrument you aren’t likely to ever use, and change the instrument definition to be one line:

Add that to your score and it’s easy to display if you don’t care about playback for that staff.

A fully featured instrument designer where you can specify all attributes of an instrument, including number of staff lines, has been requested often.


Thanks a lot!!! I’ll try :grin:

(Yeah, Dorico needs that feature)
