What it does

There are two distinctly different kinds of "ossia" measures. One kind of floating measure, called measure-assigned Ossia has a position that remains fixed relative to the measure to which it is attached. The other, called page-assigned Ossia, can be created only in Page View, and is attached permanently to a particular spot on the page, where it will remain even if the "real" music around it changes position. In this dialog box, you specify a page-assigned floating measure’s precise positioning in relation to the page to which it’s attached.
