The Palette  includes a range of icons divided into several units:

  • Control Group: With the “Select” tool  it is possible to go to any position in the note sheet.
  • "Create Staves":   creates a new group of bracketed or braced right hand and left hand staves.  creates a new staff definition, i.e. a container for staff meta-information which includes meta-information about the clef’s pitch, the key signature, the label (right hand or left hand), the time signature.
  • "Create Containers": “Section” X , “Measure”  , “Staff” X and “Layer” X : create new containers in the note sheet which are themselves able to contain other data types. All comprised data in a container result in a meaningful whole.


  • "Create Events": “Note”  , “Rest”  , "MRest" , "Space" X, “Beam (group)”  , “Chord (group)”  : this unity contains the minimum unit of elements which can be created within a musical score in the Score View.


  • "Create Variants": “Apparatus” X / “Reading” X:  enable the encoding of variants, a specialty of the editor for musicological use.


  • "Create Additions": "Create Slur" X "Create Tie" X "Dynam" X : with this  element group useful music notation symbols can be added to the score.



For further details of the application of the Palette please see the chapter Using the MEI Score Editor.
