Cue notes


Cue notes are reduced-size notes in a score that a player under normal circumstances isn’t meant to play. Usually they indicate musical material being played by other instruments, and are used as an aid for keeping track of one’s place in the music, especially during long rests. Or they may appear in one player’s part for him or her to play in case the primary instrument or player isn’t available. To introduce cue notes using content from another staff automatically, see Add Cue Notes Plug-in.

In addition to the method described here, you can reduce note sizes in several other ways—only the notehead, for example. See Note size for more information.
