Custom playing techniques

Custom playing techniques allow you to represent any playing technique in any way you want, for example, if the default glyph used for a particular playing technique is not the one to which you or the players reading the music are accustomed.

As well as designing the appearance of custom playing techniques using existing glyphs, text, and your own graphics, you can define how they should affect playback and whether or not they show continuation lines.

You can create and edit custom playing techniques in the Edit Playing Techniques dialog and its related dialogs.

You can find your custom playing techniques in their assigned category in the Playing Techniques panel in Write mode. You can also input them using the popover by entering the popover text assigned to them.
