Changing the curvature direction of slurs

You can change the curvature direction of individual slurs so that they curve upwards, downwards, or have a multi-segment S-shape. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only or for all layouts and frame chains.


You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


  1. Select the slurs whose curvature direction you want to change.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Direction in the Slurs group.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Up

    • Down

    • Up/Down (mirrored S-shape)

    • Down/Up (S-shape)


The curvature direction of the selected slurs is changed. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
