Properties Palette Pages

Common Pages

In general, element properties are classified in terms of the following:

  Appearance Properties affect the way the element appears on the score.

  Performance Properties affect how the element sounds during playback.

  General Properties include some common properties that also affect how elements look on the score.

Each of these categories is represented by a "page" or "tab" in the Properties Palette.

Action Page

If a selected element has actions associated with it (e.g. notes, staves) the Properties Palette also displays the Actions tab. This tab contains a list of actions that can be applied to the selected element(s).

Other Pages

Some elements haveOther pages beyond the standard Appearance, Performance and General.

For example, the Staff Properties Palette has pages for specifying instrumentation and routing for each track.
