Hiding/Showing accidentals on guitar pre-bends/pre-dives

You can hide/show accidentals on guitar pre-bends/pre-dives individually, for example, to save horizontal space in a layout that also shows the interval clearly on tablature. 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 guitar pre-bends/pre-dives whose accidentals you want to hide/show. You can do this in Write mode and Engrave mode.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Pre-bend accidental in the Guitar Pre-bends group.
  3. Choose one of the following options:
    • Hide

    • Show


Accidentals on the selected guitar pre-bends are hidden when you choose Hide, and shown when you choose Show. This does not affect the interval shown for the selected guitar pre-bends on tablature. If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.
