You can adjust the vertical positioning
of expressions along a baseline after they have been entered provided
they have been set to Above Staff Baseline or Below Staff Baseline in
the Vertical portion of the Positioning tab of the Text/Shape Expression
Designer. See Expression Designer-Positioning. Then, do the following
- Click the Expression tool . The Expression menu appears.
- Choose Expression > Adjust Above
Staff Baseline or Adjust Below Staff Baseline depending on whether
you want to move expressions above or below the staff, respectively. Positioning
triangles appear to the left of the staff.
Note. View the Using the positioning triangles QuickStart Video for a demonstration of how to use the positioning triangles.
- Drag the positioning triangles to adjust the
vertical positioning of the expressions. These triangles are handles
that control the baseline for the expressions (the invisible line against
which the bottoms of the letters align). Dragging the leftmost triangle
up or down moves the baseline for these expressions vertically, affecting
the entire piece. The second triangle sets the baseline for expressions
for this staff only. The third triangle, whose effect is only visible
in Page View, sets the baseline for this staff in this system only. The
rightmost triangle sets the baseline for the next expression you enter.
