What it does

This command lets you fill the selected staff with one of several alternative-notation styles, such as slashes, measure repeats, or blank measures. You can also apply alternate notation to portions of staves using staff styles. (Alternate Notation applied as a Staff Attribute will affect the entire staff. Alternate Notation applied as a Staff Style will affect only the selected region.)

Tip. To apply alternate notation to selected measures, use staff styles. For more information, see Staff Styles.
