Adding text to score - how to make global performance notes


I’d like to add some rehearsal marks (text) to my score and I want them to appear on all parts. Is there a way I can add text globally to all parts? The section in question is a repeat section that I would like to ad a x3 to.

Thanks in advance.


Just add it as system text (Shift+Alt+X on Windows), not as Rehearsal Marks. It only shows above the staves where System Objects appear (specified in Layout Options), but will appear on all parts.

Shift+X adds staff text on one staff only; Shift+Alt+X adds System Text, which appears on all staves (in the parts) but only specific staves in the Full Score.

Specifically for the ‘3x’ text, if you select the start or end repeat bar line and look at the properties panel, there are properties for play n times text…

You can specify number of repeats by setting the Play n times property of the repeat barline.

(You can change the wording in Engraving Options>Repeat Markers…)
