These are old instructions for MuseScore 1
For MuseScore 3 users, see Slurs

A slur is a curved line between two or more notes that indicates they are to be played without separation. If you mean to join two notes of the same pitch, see Tie


  1. Leave note entry mode and select the first note:
    First note selected
  2. S creates a slur:
    Slur to adjacent note
  3. Shift+Right moves the slur end to the next note:
    Three-note slur
  4. X flips the slur direction:
    Slur above note stems
  5. Escape ends Slur Edit mode:
    Slur no longer in edit mode

The boxes or handles (displayed in the images for steps 2-4 above) can be adjusted with the mouse. The two outer handles adjust the start and end of the slur. The two inner handles adjust the contour of the slur.

A slur can span several systems and pages. The start and end of a slur is anchored to a note/chord or rest. If the notes are repositioned due to changes in the layout, stretch or style, the slur also moves and adjusts in size.

Note: It is not possible to change the start and end anchor notes using the mouse. Use Shift + left or right arrow keys to adjust the start and end points of a slur.
