Changing the default angles of glissando lines project-wide

In Dorico Pro, the endpoints of glissando lines are automatically positioned beside noteheads. When glissando lines cover a small pitch range, the angle of the line can be quite shallow. You can change the values for the minimum spans of glissando lines covering a small pitch range in different contexts project-wide.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-Shift-E to open Engraving Options.
  2. Click Glissando Lines in the page list.
  3. In the Vertical Position section, change the values for the positions of glissando lines in the contexts relevant to your project.

    For example, you can increase the minimum span of glissando lines between notes in the same staff space.

  4. Click Apply, then Close.


The default positions and angles of glissando lines are changed.


You can make graphical adjustments to the positions of individual glissando lines in Engrave mode.
