 +====== Tempo ====== 
 +The tempo of your score can be set using [[writing:​text_marks|text marks]] in one of three formats. These text marks can appear anywhere in your score. If you are setting the tempo for your entire score, it is recommended that you use a [[writing:​text_marks|free text mark]] situated //before// the first beat of the first bar. If you wish to alter the tempo, but not have a mark appear in the published score, you can [[publishing:​publish_visibility|exclude the text from publishing]].
