Moving dynamics rhythmically

You can move dynamics to new rhythmic positions after they have been input.

  • You can only move dynamics to existing noteheads.

  • If you want to move a single dynamic within a group, you must click and drag it with the mouse. If you use the key commands, the whole group is moved.


  1. In Write mode, select the dynamics you want to move.

    When using the mouse, you can only move one dynamic rhythmically at a time.

  2. Move the dynamics to the next/previous notehead on the staff in any of the following ways:
    • Press Alt-Right Arrow to move them to the right.

    • Press Alt-Left Arrow to move them to the left.

    • Click and drag the dynamic to the right/left.


The selected dynamics are moved to noteheads to the right/left along the staff.
