Metadata

At the top of the score editing window, above any of the staffs or measures is theĀ Score Metadata.

Score metadata

The metadata displays 4 pieces of information about the score:

  • The song title.
  • The artist name: who is the song by.
  • The Beats Per Minute (BPM): the tempo of the song. This affects playback of the score.
  • The tabber’s name: who wrote out this score, i.e. you!

Double-click on the metadata to bring up the metadata editing dialog:

You can edit any of the metadata fields here. The tick boxes determine whether this field will be displayed or not. Note that the Title must always be displayed if the metadata is visible.
