1. Sometimes you may need to use different staff labels in your score than the default instrument names. For example, you may wish to label a multi-instrument percussion staff simply as ‘Percussion’. Or, in dramatical pieces, you may wish to identify character parts rather than using Soprano, Mezzo-soprano and so on.
  2. In Setup mode, give your players the names you wish to identify them with in the music.
  3. In Layout Options, choose Staves and Systems and check the relevant players to show their player names instead of instrument names.
