The Music Grid

One can imagine a single staff of music displayed as one long horizontal row of measures. Two staves could be represented as two rows of measures, and so on.

In this way, all the measures and staves in the document can be thought of as a large rectangular "music grid", upon which the notes and other elements are placed.

  The Music Score has two different view modes for representing music: Page View and Track View. In Track View, the music is displayed as a music grid, with all the tracks and measures displayed in one long scrolling view.

It is important to understand that as you change the number of measures and staves (even indirectly) the grid is resized as well.
