Hiding/Showing playing technique duration lines

You can hide/show duration lines for individual playing techniques. When hiding duration lines, you can show nothing or sim.. When showing duration lines, you can show a line or repeat the signs of glyph playing techniques. You can do this for the current layout and frame chain only or for all layouts and frame chains.

Note

These steps only apply to playing technique duration lines. They do not apply to playing technique transition lines. Instead, you can change the style of transition lines.

Prerequisite

  • The playing techniques whose duration lines you want to hide/show have duration.

  • The lower zone is shown.

  • Properties is selected in the lower zone toolbar.

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

Procedure

  1. In Write mode, select the playing techniques whose duration lines you want to hide/show.
  2. In the Properties panel, activate Continuation type in the Playing Techniques group.
  3. Select one of the following options from the menu:
    • None

    • sim.

    • Line

    • Repeat the signs (glyph playing techniques only)

Result

Duration lines are hidden after the selected playing techniques when you select None. When you select sim., duration lines are hidden and sim. is shown once after each selected playing technique.

Duration lines are shown after the selected playing techniques when you select Line.

For glyph playing techniques, the playing technique is repeated for each note within the duration automatically when you select Repeat the signs.

If the property scope was set to Locally, this change only takes effect in the current layout and frame chain.

Tip

You can change the default continuation type for each playing technique in the Edit Playing Techniques dialog.
