Edit Chord Symbols with the Properties Palette

The Properties Palette is a useful tool for changing the properties of any symbol, including chord symbols.

Be sure the application is in Select Mode, then select the chord symbol you want to edit.

You can select several different chord symbols and change all of their properties at once.

Note: If you are finding that you need to move all of the chord symbols higher to clear some notes, consider adjusting the Symbol Spacing Above setting for the system instead of adjusting their position.
