Guitar Tabulature - Hammer-ons and pull-offs?

• Feb 28, 2018 - 13:45

Please could you advise me on how to write hammer-ons and pull-offs into the guitar tab stave? One of my students wants to include them in his composition and I can't find them in the manual.

Apologies if this has already been answered elsewhere, I'm very new to this forum.


There is no direct/automatic way to achieve this currently.
Former feature requests exist for this, eg: #16262: Slurs: integrate a text option to enable annotations for hammer ons (e.g. H) and pull offs (e.g. P)
As workaround, use slurs and staff text (P.O, and H.) above them.
For the layout (centering), then, select all similar elements and change the horizontal/vertical offsets, in Inspector, as wished.
