Holds and Pauses panel

The Holds and Pauses panel allows you to input all the different types of holds and pauses available in Dorico Pro, including alternative versions of fermatas.

  • You can hide/show the Holds and Pauses panel by clicking Holds and Pauses in the Notations toolbox on the right of the window in Write mode.

    You can also hide/show the panel whose icon is currently selected in the Notations toolbox by pressing Ctrl/Cmd-9 or clicking the disclosure arrow on the right of the window.

The Holds and Pauses panel contains the following sections:

  • Fermatas

  • Breath Marks

  • Caesuras


Holds and pauses do not currently have an effect in playback, but this is planned for future versions.
