Nudging Symbols that split System Breaks

Many symbols are capable of splitting the system break, that is, they span across the last measure on a line and the first measure on the next line. You can nudge these independently.

Nudge using Shortcut Keys

  • Select the segment of the symbol you would like to nudge. For segment that are just lines, you may find it easier to set your Mouse Drag Options and drag select the line.
  • Hold down the Ctrl key, then use the arrow keys to move the symbol up, down, right, or left. The symbol will move independently from it's other segments. To move all of the splits simultaneously, use the Properties Palette instead
