Up-bow and Down-bow?

• Mar 24, 2018 - 21:58

Hi I was just wondering is someone knew how I can write in up and down bow in my music using musescore. I have tried looking, but I just can't seem to find it. Thanks.


These markings are in the Articulations and Ornaments Palette. See attached image (I've underlined them, hover the mouse or pointer over them and you wil see the marking text)

You probably are using basic workspace. Change to advanced at the bottom of the pallette! The bow signs are on the articulations pallette

A different sound from Up-bow and Down-bow would be more important that the visual sign. BUT... Unfortunately, the standard General MIDI world forgot this feature.

The question would be... If some soundfont file had the two different sounds... Could MuseScore play it? ???

That's a good idea, especially with string instruments like violin... gosh may be type / and \ to make \/ for an upbow symbol or type the the letter V . The best I can come up with for a downwards bow symbol is /7 using / and a 7
