Changing glissando line text

You can show individual glissando lines with “gliss.” text, “port.” text, or without text, independently of your project-wide setting. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only or for all layouts and frame chains.


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

  • You have chosen the appropriate property scope for local properties.


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

    • Port.

    • No text


The text shown on the selected glissando lines is changed. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.


You can change the text shown on all glissando lines project-wide on the Glissando Lines page in Engrave > Engraving Options.
