How to change the distance between the left-hand page edge and the start of the music?

Post by kimfierens »

More specifically, I would like to set the distance indicated by the green line to 0. The image is for inclusion in a webpage and becomes easier to handle if there is absolutely no margin between the left-hand "page" edge and the leftmost tip of the brace.

Thanks for reading and cheerio!

If your margins are set to 0, you'll get this:

You probably have the first system of the flow set to indent. Layout options--Note Spacing, set to 0.

Well, actually you'll want to set that to 0, and set the margin to something a little higher, so the brace is included on the page.

Thanks! It works perfectly if I set the indent to 1 5/8 spaces.

I think there are options in Engraving options. And you could use Music Symbols editor in Engrave menu to change it — never tried this though.
