Changing the style of glissando lines

Glissando lines can be shown as straight lines or wiggly lines. You can change the glissando line style of glissando lines individually, independently of your project-wide setting.


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


  1. Select the glissando lines whose style you want to change. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Glissando style in the Glissando Lines group.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Straight line

    • Wiggly line


The glissando line style is changed for the selected glissando lines.

  • Deactivating Glissando style returns the selected glissando lines to the default style.

  • You can also change the glissando style by opening the ornaments popover and changing the entry.

  • You can change the default style for all glissando lines project-wide on the Glissando Lines page in Engrave > Engraving Options.
