1. You don’t need to exit note input to create other notations.
  2. For example, type Shift+D to open the dynamics popover while the caret is visible.
  3. Enter your required dynamics, even starting a hairpin – the hairpin will extend as you add more notes. End a hairpin by typing ? in the dynamics popover.
  4. Use other popovers to add further notations, for example trills and tremolos.
  5. Almost every type of notation can be created in this way, including playing techniques, tempo changes and clefs.
