# Edit tempo text in 2.0 beta 1

• Sep 4, 2014 - 16:40

Using 2.0 beta, can I edit tempo text created in 1.3?

My attached example has tempo text (Adagio) but no meter in the text body. In 1.3 I can modify the tempo by right clicking on the text "Adagio" and selecting tempo properties.

I don't see anything obvious to do the same in 2.0 beta.

Yes, Inspector is one way of editing tempo. However, in many cases it isn't even necessary. If your tempo text itself is of the form "quarternote = 120" (or whatever), then MuseScore will by default *automatically* calculate the correct tempo from the text itself. However, while that option is enabled by default for new tempo markings you insert, I don't think it is for tempo markings in score imported from 1.3. You;d still need the Inspector to enable the "follow text" option.

But once enabled, it *is* pretty cool to just be able to edit the text and get the right tempo.

As I understand there is no in MS 2.0 text marks of a tempo (like "Adagio" etc. in ver. 1.3). But I need (and others, I'm sure) such marks as e.g. "meno mosso", "a tempo" and so on. Yes, for playing one can put note=number (BPM) and to get the absolute computer accuracy but for printing sheet a usual description seems to be more comfortable and more familiar. Or I couldn't find where such a text is placed in menus?
