Grace notes

• Aug 23, 2020 - 15:47

Can anyone help me putting in two grace notes as shown in the uploaded file? I think I used to know how to do it back in version 2 of Musescore, but I'm not sure. I can't use a mordent because neither of the two grace notes are the note they are tied to.

Maybe use two 32nd notes tied to a dotted eighth? But I seem to remember being able to insert these notes as shown in my upload, and then being able to change the pitch of each of them.

Select the main note and add the grace notes from the palette. They will end up being the same pitch as the main note. You can then select each grace note and use arrows (or drag with your mouse) to change the pitch. To connect them with the slur, you must click the first grace note, then ctrl+click the main note then apply the slur (either press s or use the palette).

If you use a lot of grace notes, you can define shortcuts for most grace notes in preferences.
