[ PC Version ] [ Mac Version ] [ Print Version ] [ Print Version ] [ Back to Mac User Guide ] [ Back to PC User Guide ]

With the score viewer, you can look at the full score for a selection. You can bookmark pages in online scores for future use, and score views can be changed according to your preferences. You may want to use the score viewer in conjunction with the audio player to follow along. If the score you want to view is unavailable in Variations, it likely has not yet been digitized but is probably available for checkout.

On the sidebar [left-hand side], there is an annotation box with two toggle buttons, Hide/Show Tools and Hide/Show Annotations. By clicking on the Show Tools button, the annotation tools will appear surrounding the score. The button will change to Hide Tools, and clicking it again will hide them. This is the same for the Show/Hide annotation button. However, hiding the annotations will also hide the tools. Hiding the annotations will not delete or clear them. More information on the annotation tools is on the Annotation page
