Changing the appearance of individual niente hairpins

You can show niente hairpins in two ways in Dorico Pro, and you can change how they appear individually, independently of your project-wide setting.


  1. Select the hairpins whose niente style you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Niente style in the Dynamics group.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Circle on hairpin

    • Text


The niente style of the selected hairpins is changed.


You can change how all niente hairpins appear project-wide in the Gradual Dynamics section of the Dynamics page in Engrave > Engraving Options.
