Pedal up symbol

• Jun 19, 2015 - 17:32

I've cast around in the Handbook and forums to find how to do this, and haven't got anywhere yet:

Rather than using lines after the Pedal symbol, I would like to use the traditional asterisk sign, representing Pedal Up. I've managed to get the sign to appear by right clicking on 'line properties', copying and pasting the 'Begin' text into 'End' and changing the 'Ped' text to 'Up'. I can also turn off the hook, but I cannot get rid of the line itself.

Could someone tell me how to do this please?

A very good idea. It seems to me a bit of a bodge to 'hide' things by making them invisible, rather than simply not having them there in the first place. I suppose if it works it's not really a problem, but it can be a bit distracting; I like to see a score as it's going to be printed, rather than having lots of half visible markings all over the place.
