This notation reference contains information about the accepted conventions for presenting different notations and how to change their appearance and placement in Dorico, both for individual items and by changing project-wide settings.

It also contains instructions for inputting more complex notations, such as cross-staff glissando lines, which are described in the corresponding chapter.

Tasks in the notation reference can outline project-wide changes you can make in Engrave > Engraving Options, such as changing spacing gaps or the project-wide appearance of pedal lines, or the individual changes you can make to items, which often involve using properties in the Properties panel.

You can find basic input methods for notations in the Write mode chapter.
