Lengthening/Shortening repeat ending hooks

You can lengthen/shorten the hooks in repeat endings individually, independently of your project-wide settings. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only, or for all layouts and frame chains.

You cannot change the hook length of an individual segment in a repeat ending. Changing the hook length affects the whole repeat ending.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

  • Graphic Editing Graphic Editing button is selected in the Engrave toolbox.

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. In Engrave mode, select the repeat endings whose hooks you want to lengthen/shorten.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Hook length in the Repeat Endings group.
  3. Change the value in the value field.


Increasing the value makes repeat ending hooks longer. Decreasing the value makes repeat ending hooks shorter. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.


You can change the default length of all repeat ending hooks project-wide on the Repeat Endings page in Engraving Options.
