Staff Namings

Command Location: Staves Menu / Staff Manager

Displays both the Full Name (‘Name’) and the Short Name of the selected staff, e.g. the name may be ‘Staff 1 (Acoustic Grand Piano)’ with a short name of ‘Trk 1 (Aco Gra Pia)’. Both the Name and Short Name may be edited.

Staff namings are displayed as rich text objects so font formatting is possible using the right-click context menu in the edit boxes.

It is useful to have the two name types as you may, at times, only wish to display the short name of the staff on the score (see Staff Tools and Namings) rather than the Full Name.

The instrument name for the staff can be edited but it will be set to the chosen instrument whenever a new instrument patch is selected in Staff Manager or the Instrument dialog.
