Add text to end of a line

• Mar 29, 2013 - 03:16

This may be just a little thing, but when adding pedal marks to a piece, sometimes it is desirable to indicate which ones are written in by the composer, and which ones are editorial. This is done by putting the mark in parenthesis. It is easy enough to add the '(' to the beginning of the line in the line properties, but there is no way I can see to add ')' to the end of the line. Is this an oversight or is there some particular reason for this?

is just a pedal mark in parenthesis. it should look like this ( ,__________, )
instead, all I can get is this ( ,_________,
because you can't put text at the end of the pedal line, only at the beginning. look in the three boxes of line properties.
I think Shoichi gets the idea.
Also, while we're on the subject, the symbol and text part of the line properties are not mutually exclusive, but they are still shown as radio buttons. Wouldn't check boxes be better for this. I just had to discover by accident that I could have both text and the symbol at the beginning of the line (the text appears first, followed by the symbol, followed by the hook which is drawn opposite the way I think it should be because only a negative number gives you a hook above the line.)
