Lyrics, chords, and expressions can all be adjusted vertically using positioning triangles. These positioning triangles are used to adjust the “baseline” which is the imaginary horizontal line to which these elements are attached (above or below the staff). Whether you are positioning chords, lyrics, or expressions there are four positioning triangles, each responsible for a specific range; score, staff, system, or next entry (for an example, see To adjust the vertical positioning of expressions, To set the baseline (vertical position) for lyrics graphically and Position Chords/Position Fretboards under the Chord menu.

Note. View the Using the positioning triangles QuickStart Video for a demonstration of how to use the positioning triangles.
