Customization of toolbars

• Jun 12, 2020 - 05:09

Please could someone tell me if it is possible to customize toolbars in Musescore version 3.4.2. I want to add the "slur" line button, next to the existing "tie" button on the Note Input toolbar.
Thank you for assistance.

That's because slurs aren't really part of notes the way ties are; they are just articulation markings. The note input toolbar is for more note-related things - the actual pitch and duration. Other markings, including the hundreds of articulations, dynamics, lines, key signatures, barline styles, and so forth, are all found in the palette.

Thank you for your advice, Marc.

I am new to MuseScore but I have used Noteworthy Composer for 25 years; you may be interested in my overall impressions regarding MuseScore:
The input of the musical score in MuseScore is a much more modern interface for the user than Noteworthy Composer and I have to admit that it makes NWC seem a little tired! However, I have to say that I am astonished at the very poor interface MuseScore has with the user when it comes to input of lyrics. Just one example: it appears to be completely impossible to cut and paste lyrics text in any practical or meaningful way.
(I do not want to sound insulting; just wish to be helpful.)
