By default, music in our player is displayed in Fluid layout, which means we automatically calculate the number of measures of music per line to fit the size of your screen. But we also offer a Paged layout:
In Paged layout, the music is laid out as if it were on a piece of paper, centered on your screen. This prevents the width of each stave from getting too long, and it lets you control where line breaks should be.
To switch to Paged layout, click the gear icon in the lower right and change the Layout to Paged:
You can always switch back to Fluid via that same method.
Zoom behavior in Paged layout
If you resize the notation via the zoom level in Paged layout, the entire page will zoom in/out — as if the notation were a PDF:
This differs from zoom behavior in Fluid layout. In Fluid, we will automatically change the measure layout to put more (or fewer) bars per system, as described here.
Controlling line breaks in Paged layout
To control line breaks in Paged layout, use the “Toggle line break” function in our editor.
