Changing the length of a symbol


  1. Select the symbol.

    The handles appear.

    Figure: Symbols with a length have two handles when selected.

  2. Drag one of the handles.

    You may be restricted to vertically or horizontally only, depending on the type of symbol.


    In the Preferences dialog (Scores–Editing page), there is a preference called “Keep Crescendo Symbols Horizontal”. If this option is activated, crescendo and diminuendo symbols are never slanted.
