Breaths and pauses
Breath and pause markings are available in the Breaths & Pauses palette (Advanced workspace).
To add a breath, or pause (aka caesura / "tram lines" / "railroad tracks") to the score, use one of the following options:
- Select a note or rest and click a breath or pause symbol in a palette (double-click in versions prior to 3.4).
- Drag a breath or pause symbol from a palette onto a note or rest in the score.
The symbol is placed after the note. Its position can be adjusted by editing the X and Y offsets in the Inspector, or, in edit mode, using the arrow keys.
Adjust pause length
You can adjust the pause length (in seconds) of the added symbol in the Inspector.
