Paged layout

If you have Paged layout active, your 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.


Changing the layout

We support four layouts: Auto, Fluid, Horizontal and Paged. By default, we use Auto mode, which means Fluid for smaller screens and Paged for larger screens.

To switch layouts, click the gear icon in the lower right and look for the Layout section:


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.

Controlling the stave width in Paged layout

To increase or decrease the width of staves in Paged layout, use the “Resize stave width” function in our editor.

Can Soundslice save the fact that I’ve chosen Paged layout for a given slice?

Yes! If you’re logged in and have a paid Soundslice account, we’ll automatically save the currently selected layout so your practice environment will be preserved next time you view that slice.
