What it does
This small graphic display lets you position
your measure numbers (relative to the staff) by dragging it within a mock-up
of a staff.
You don’t have to drag the 0 (the stand-in
for a measure number) itself. Instead, drag anywhere in this graphic box;
the 0 moves as you drag.
Left • Right • Center. The options in this drop-down
list specify the alignment of measure numbers relative to the left
and right barlines (closer to one or the other, or centered between them).
Your choice here affects the point from which the numbers in the H: and
V: text boxes are measured.
from Staff: H: • V:. The numbers in these text boxes specify the
exact default position of the number within the measure. As always, a
positive H: measurement moves the measure number to the right, and a positive
V: measurement moves it upward.
• Cancel. Click OK to confirm, or Cancel to discard, the changes
you’ve made in the measure number’s position. You return to the Measure
Number dialog box.
