The Input Palette: An Introduction



The Input Palette is quite literally a palette of music elements that you can add to your document. Whenever you want to add a music symbol you should go to the Input Palette first.



The music symbols are organized into different pages according to element type. All the notes are in one page, all the dynamic markings are in another page, all the ornaments are in yet another page, and so on. Once a music symbol is selected in the Input Palette, it's a simple matter of clicking the mouse in the music to add the symbol.


Depending on which view you use, it may not always be possible to enter every symbol in every view. For example, the Piano Roll does not display slurs or ties so it is not possible to enter them there - you must use the Music Score.
