Hiding/Showing fingering slides

You can hide/show slides between notes played by the same left-hand finger on the same string on fretted instruments.


These steps only apply to fingerings belonging to fretted instruments.


  • You have input the same left-hand fingering for the notes at the start and end of the slides.

  • You have specified the same string for the notes at the start and end of the slides.

  • If you are in Engrave mode, Graphic Editing is selected in the Engrave toolbox.


  1. Select the destination notes before which you want to hide/show fingering slides. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate/deactivate Slide in in the Fingering and Positions group.


Fingering slides are shown before the selected notes when Slide in is activated, and hidden when it is deactivated. If the gap between the source and destination notes is small enough, fingering slides appear as an angled line joining the fingerings. If the gap is large, fingering slides appear as a fixed length angled line to the left of the destination notes.


If you want to adjust the placement or angle of the slide, you can move either the fingerings or the slide itself graphically in Engrave mode. Dorico Pro automatically adjusts the length/angle of fingering slides when you move the fingerings at the start/end.
