Stoccato notes

Could someone please tell me how I put in staccato notes?

Oh thank you! That's brilliant. Easy when you know how!
I play the handbells and use Musescore to adapt music for the number of bells we have. There are many ways of playing the bells to get different sounds from them. One way is to 'thumb damp' them (which makes it sound staccato) and is done by placing the thumb of your hand on the outside of the handbell casting, producing a stopped sound as the clapper strikes the bell.
Best wishes
