Technique markings

Post by mikhail » Fri Apr 14, 2017 2:04 pm


I understand we have to use SHIFT+x to write playing techniques not included in the (yet comprehensive) list. I use a lot of divisi markings and player id (like 1.,3.,etc.).

Is there a way to choose a fixed distance from the staff for that kind of text ? I'd like to get it closer to the staff, especially when working on orchestral scores to be printed on A4 sheets of paper.

For the moment, I adjust each occurrence in Engraving mode but it is a tedious process.

Any idea ?
