Custom lines

Custom lines allow you to design lines that appear any way you want and save them for use in multiple projects.

Custom lines comprise the same components as the default lines in Dorico Pro. However, there are many possible combinations, and you can create new components and edit existing ones.

  • Lines can have custom annotations as caps or as centered annotations, which can appear repeated across the duration of lines. Lines can also have hyphenated text across their duration.

  • Line bodies can comprise single or double lines, wedges, or patterns of repeatable symbols.

You can create and edit lines in the Edit Lines dialog, line bodies in the Edit Line Bodies dialog, line annotations in the Edit Line Annotations dialog, and repeatable symbols in the Edit Repeatable Symbols dialog. You can find your custom lines in their assigned category in the Lines panel in Write mode.
