Markers are labels locked to a particular position in time, most commonly in relation to a video. They typically indicate an important moment that requires musical prominence, and composers often use them to help shape the writing process.

By default, markers in Dorico for iPad show the default text “Marker” and also include the timecode of their fixed position in time.

You can show markers above/below the start of each system or below the timecode staff, if there is one, in each layout independently.

Any markers you input are automatically included when you export MIDI.
