This notation reference contains information about the accepted conventions for presenting different notations and how to change their appearance and placement in Dorico Pro, both for individual items and by changing default settings.

It also contains instructions for inputting more complex notations, such as cross-staff glissando lines, which are described in the corresponding chapter.

Tasks in the notation reference outline the default changes you can make to items, which can apply per-flow, per-layout or project-wide; for example, changing spacing gaps or the project-wide appearance of pedal lines are both project-wide changes you can make in Engraving Options. Tasks also outline the individual changes you can make to items independently of your default settings, which often involve using properties in the Properties panel.

You can find basic input methods for notations in the Write mode chapter.
