Selecting handles on items

In Engrave mode, you can select individual handles on items, for example, if you want to move the graphical end of a gradual dynamic without moving its start.


These steps do not apply to frame, note spacing, or staff spacing handles.


  1. Select a handle in any of the following ways:
    • Select the whole item and press Tab until the handle you want is selected.

    • Click the handle you want.


      You can show handles on all items, not just selected items, by choosing Engrave > Show Handles > Always. This can make it easier to select individual handles on multiple items.

  2. Optional: Select handles on other items as well by Ctrl/Cmd-clicking them.

    You cannot select subsequent handles on other items by selecting the items and pressing Tab.
