Inputting playing techniques with the panel

You can input playing techniques using the Playing Techniques panel, both during step input and by adding them to existing notes.


These steps describe inputting with the default mouse input preference Create item at selection.

If you want to add the same playing technique to multiple notes, activate Allow multiple items to be created with the mouse in the Editing section of the Note Input and Editing page in Preferences, so that you do not have to reselect the playing technique for each note.


  1. In Write mode, do one of the following:
    • Start note input.

    • Select an existing note to which you want to add a playing technique.


      You can only add playing techniques to one note at a time.

  2. In the Notations toolbox, click Playing Techniques to show the Playing Techniques panel.
  3. In the Playing Techniques panel, click the playing technique you want.


The playing technique is added to the selected note.

During step input, playing techniques are input at the caret position, even if your preference is set to Load pointer with item.
