Scale Staves by

To change the overall size of the staves, increase or decrease the percentage value in the Scale Staves by box. Values larger than 100% enlarge the staves, while values below fit more staves in a given area.

Bar Numbers

To show bar numbers at the start of each line, check the Show Bar Numbers box.

Extra Page

Mus2 determines the layout and flow of the notes, and accordingly, the number of pages, in your score automatically. If you need extra pages at the end of your score, for example, to provide extra information, enter the number of pages needed in the Extra Pages box.
