Adding expressive text to existing dynamics

You can add expressive text to dynamics after they have been input, for example, if you want to add sim. instead of repeating dynamics across multiple phrases.


  1. Select the dynamics to which you want to add expressive text. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate the following properties, individually or together, in the Dynamics group:
    • Prefix adds expressive text before the existing dynamic.

    • Suffix adds expressive text after the existing dynamic.

  3. Enter the expressive text you want to add into the corresponding value field.
  4. Press Return.


The text you entered is added to the selected dynamics as expressive text.

Deactivating the properties removes the corresponding expressive text from the selected dynamics.


Deactivating properties permanently deletes any custom text entered.
