Not everything can be set in the "style" windows. Here are some examples:
a)I want to change the default line style of the octave lines from "solid" to "dash" (according to the printed scores).
b)I'd also like to change the default text from "8va" to simply "8", and change the font.
c)Other things that could be added are the different pedal options (eg. changing the ending from a hook to an asterisk, etc...).

I've heard that those settings are 'buried', and that by doing something, they can actually be modified, maybe by modifying a text file I can't find (BTW I've got some programming knowledge).

Thanks.

Most of these things can be accomplished through the customizable palette facility. Setting slurs to dotted doesn't seem to stick, though. That is, even if add a dotted slur to your palette, when you place it in your score, it comes out solid.
