Changing tempo text

You can change the text of existing tempo marks individually. For example, if you want to add “al fine” to a ritardando at the end of a flow.


  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.


  1. Select the tempo marks whose tempo text you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, enter the tempo text you want into the Text field in the Tempo group.
  3. Press Return.


The tempo text for the selected tempo marks is changed.


You can also change the tempo text by opening the tempo popover and changing the entry.
