The MEI Score Editor Perspective consists of four views:
- The Musical Score View on the left.
- A Palette which appears simultaneously on the right side of the Score View when a document is opened. The Palette can be closed and opened separately via the white triangle at the top.
- The Outline View in the upper right area.
- The Properties View on the lower right. The Navigator View from which the Note Editor has been started after an MEI Object has been opened appears as a hidden tab behind the Properties View.
The Outline and Properties Views are only opened when an MEI document is created or opened or if the XML Editor is open in the background. Both views make it possible to edit an MEI Object.
