Text visible in all parts, how?


I’m trying to figure out how to get text visible in all parts. If I for instance write composer “xxx xxx 2017” on the top staff of the score it shows only in that part, not in any of the other parts.

How do I make the text object Composer a global object that shows in every part?

Furthermore, how do I change the position? I have managed to move the text sideways, but not up or down.

Congratulations to a very good update!


The way to do this is using the frame editing in Engrave mode.

However, if all you want is the composer to show on each part there’s already a default frame for that. You should open the Project Info dialog (using the File -> Project Info menu item) and add your text into the “Composer” input field.

If alternatively you want to make text appear in every part at a specific rhythmic position in the score, as if it were (say) a tempo instruction, then you can input it using Write > Create System Text (key command Shift+Alt+X).
