Our Score View looks simple, but is loaded with powerful tools that make working with sheet music easier.
The Score View can be broken into the following main sections:
Tap any of the links above to skip straight to information on each of these sections.
The main section of the Score View is dedicated to your sheet music. Turn pages by swiping, or by tapping on the left and right side of the screen.
Two additional features are also hidden away in this section of the Score View:
- Quick Jumps: Quick jumps like this will appear in your score viewer’s margins when you reach a repeat, Coda, D.S. or D.C. symbol. Just tap the button to skip straight backward or forward to the target of that symbol.
- Score Lookup: Enote scores let you quickly reference the full score from any measure in your instrumental part. Just hold your finger on the measure you’d like to compare and tap the button to call up a preview of the work's full score.
Note that Quick Jumps are currently only available in our native Digital Scores, but we intend to enhance our static Print Edition format with this feature in the future.
The top-left of your Score View shows the name of the work and composer you have open. You can exit the score view by tapping the icon.
The top-right section of the Score View contains tools for adjusting the setup and contents of your score.
- Full Screen:
Tap this icon to remove all top and bottom menu items.
- Score Settings:
Tap for a list of tools that let you adjust the layout of your scores. Our flexible Digital Scores give you full control, while static Print Editions only provide limited options. The full list of menu items are:
Layout Type: Choose between a Tablet Layout that uses the full potential resolution of your device’s screen, or a Paper Layout that displays your score at a specific page dimension you intend to print later.
Music Size: Gives you the option to display your notation in Default, Small, Large and Extra Large sizes.
Page Format: This menu item is only visible when Paper Layout is selected, and allows you to define paper dimension, such as A3, A4 or Letter.
Notation Style: Choose between our four familiar engraving styles - Classic, Traditional, Legacy and Modern.
Background: Choose between white and sepia backgrounds for your score.
2 Pages in Landscape: This menu item is only visible when Tablet Layout is selected, and lets you choose between a full-width or two page view when your device is using a landscape orientation.
Toolbar in Full Screen: Toggle on to see your Working Tools and Navigation Pane at the bottom of your Full Screen view.
Transpose: You can instantly transpose Digital Scores up to 12 steps up or down from their original version. Read more about our transposition tool here.
System dividers: Adjust the colour and placement of system dividers, or remove them entirely .
Quick Annotations: This menu item is only visible to iPad users, who have the ability to make annotations on their score without entering Draw Mode by using an Apple Pencil. It lets you set the style, weight and color of these Quick Annotations.
Tap to easily Print your score or export a print-ready PDF. For best results, we advise switching to a Paper Layout in the Score Settings menu, then selecting your prefered Page Format. You can choose to include or exclude your annotations using the Print Annotations toggle.
Report an issue:
If you find a misprint or any other issue in your Digital Score, tap this icon to report it. Our team will quickly review your report, fix the issue for you and all other Enote users, and find the root cause of the mistake to avoid the issue in future reconstructions. Read more about reporting score errors here.
- Switch editions:
Tap this icon to switch between our flexible Digital Scores and high-quality Print Editions selected by our musicologists.
The bottom-left corner of your score view contains useful tools for practicing and preparing your score.
Tap to launch Enote’s built-in metronome. The metronome will be set to any tempo defined in the score by default. It can be adjusted via a granular BPM slider, a quick ‘tap tempo’ function, or a broad tempo preset. You can also choose between one of three metronome sounds, and toggle a “Visual Support” mode on and off.
Tap to launch Enote’s built-in tuner. You can tune to a reference tone by selecting the note and tapping Play, or tap Listen to tune using a visual interface. You can also make fine tuning adjustments to the Hz used for tuning at the bottom of your tool.
- Recording Tool:
Tap to launch Enote’s built-in recording tool. This allows you to easily record and listen back on your practice using your device's microphone, or import inspiration or accompaniments from external sources. You can share any recordings with your collaborators, or listen back on the Recordings tab of your Work Page.
- Draw Mode:
Tapping this icon launches Draw Mode, which is an alternate Score View layout full of useful tools to make your annotations more streamlined. You'll find standard Pen, Highlighter, Eraser, Shape and Text tools in the bottom panel, along with a Lasso tool that lets you select and move multiple elements, and a Bar Line tool that lets you add thickened barlines to structure your score with a tap. To the top-right you'll find the Smart Annotations icon, which lets you set rules to automatically highlight parts and symbol groups in you scores. To the top-left you'll find undo / redo buttons, a clear all icon, and an Annotation Layers icon that lets you switch between versions of your score. The Done button takes you back to the main Score View.

The bottom-right section of your Score View contains an expandable Navigation Tray that makes it easy to move around your score.
Tap to open the full tray, where you can scroll through the full pieces on a slider, navigate by movement or scenes, and add bookmarks. You can also view all saved bookmarks, and hide full movements using the icon.
When you've found your place in the score, tap the preview to move straight there. Even when your navigation tray is closed, you can see your progress listed in movements + measures and page numbers. You can also add bookmarks to a specific page by tapping the icon.
