Showing dynamics in parentheses

You can show individual dynamics in parentheses, for example, to show editorial dynamics that were not in the original manuscript. 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 dynamics you want to appear parenthesized. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Parenthesized in the Dynamics group.


Each of the selected dynamics is shown in parentheses individually. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.

Deactivating Parenthesized removes parentheses from the selected dynamics.
