The <page-layout> element

Parent elements: <defaults>, <print>

Page layout can be defined both in score-wide <defaults> and in the <print> element. If no <page-layout> element is present in the <defaults> element, default page layout values are chosen by the application.

When used in the <print> element, the <page-layout> element affects the appearance of the current page only. All other pages use the default values as determined by the <defaults> element. If any child elements are missing from the <page-layout> element in a <print> element, the values determined by the <defaults> element are used there as well.
