If you started your document from the Document
Setup Wizard, a template, or by going to the File menu and choosing New
> Default Document, all of the most common dynamic markings are defined
for you already. You only need to go through the following steps if you
want to create your own dynamic marking, or if you simply want to learn
- Click the Expression tool . Double-click any note
or measure. The Expression Selection dialog box appears.
- Choose the Dynamics category on the left and click Create. The Expression Designer
- ChooseFont > Music Font.
- Type the letter that corresponds to the dynamic
marking you want to create. A full list of the dynamic markings
in the Maestro music font appears on the Quick Reference Card. For example,
lower-case f is themarking, capital F is themarking, and so on (in the default music font, Maestro). The size and positioning characteristics are applied automatically as specified for Dynamics in the Category Designer dialog box.
- Click OK and then Assign to enter the expression.
