Inserting Note-Dependent Symbols

You can insert note-dependent symbols, such as arpeggios and strum directions, for specific notes, or you can insert them freely.


  1. Activate the staff where you want to insert the symbol.
  2. On the Symbols tab, open the section that holds the symbol.
  3. Activate the symbol.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To enter the note-dependent symbol for a note, click in front of that note.

    • To enter the symbol at another position, hold down Ctrl/Cmd and click at the position in the score where you want to insert the symbol. This is useful if you want to insert a fermata to a rest symbol, for example.


    If you hold down Alt/Opt while inserting a symbol to one staff in a grand staff, this symbol is inserted at corresponding positions on all staves.
