Articulation tool

Use this tool to enter one-character articulation markings (such as accents, staccato marks, fermatas, and so on) into your score. You attach an articulation to a single note in a single staff (by clicking on, above, or below it); if the note moves, the articulation moves with it.

You can also define an articulation for playback; it can affect either the timing or the volume (key velocity) of the note on which it appears.

To learn about how articulations are handled in linked parts, see Articulations in linked parts. See also Articulations.
