Thick Vibrato lines

• Feb 28, 2020 - 18:08

I was wondering if there was a way to increase the thickness of vibrato lines, because i cant find anything in the symbols tab.


If you mean the vibrato lines added from the Lines palette, note there are two of them - normal and wide. But indeed, neither can currently be configured further.

And that's what the "wide" version does. You need it thicker still? Seems like it would be awfully heavy. There are also the two "sawtooth" variants.

Maybe attach your score - or a relevant excerpt at least - so we can be sure we're talking about the same thing.

Oh, so you don't literally mean vibrato at all, you are using the line to mean something else entirely, it seems.

For a custom usage like this, I'd recommend building your line. For instance, create staff text (Ctrl+T), press F2 to view the Special Characters palette, click Musical Symbols, then Multi-segment lines. Now you can build a line by clicking symbols there. You'll see a variety of shapes and sizes, plus you can increase the size of the text element itself (you'll want at least 20 point for sure).
