Custom notehead sets

You can create and edit custom noteheads and notehead sets; for example, to create noteheads with specific shapes that represent extended techniques.

In Dorico Pro, noteheads are grouped into sets, which allow you to customize the noteheads used for different durations. For example, the standard notehead set uses different noteheads for quarter notes compared to half notes.

  • You can create new notehead sets and edit existing ones in the Edit Notehead Sets dialog.

  • You can create new and edit existing noteheads within each notehead set in the Edit Notehead dialog.
