how to make an "arrow" line

• May 22, 2020 - 19:14

Helo forum,

I am struggling to create a custom line that has an arrow spear as "hook". Before, in musescore 2, I believe I would add "end text" and then copy the arrow head from custom symbols in master palette. it seems now its impossible to do this. So how do I create a very "standard" line type commonly used in music from the XX and XXI century (attached picture).

I have tried typing characters in "bravura" font, but no luck. I have run out of ideas, I need some help

Actually, while it might not be possibly to copy directly from Special Characters, you can add an arrow from there to your score (within a piece of staff text or whatever) then copy it from there and paste to the Inspector. Works fine, but you might need to apply a slight Y offset adjusted to get it to line up.

Nice trick!
By the way, I see that Start Text and End Text are poorly translated in italian.
I would suggest something like "Testo iniziale" e "testo finale". Now it's totally misleading
By the way 2: we definitely need a nice, editable arrow line (or at least a line that allows users to change it's end with a symbol)

A, the text that will appear at the beginning of the line;
B, the text that will appear at the beginning of the line in the next stave after a break;
C, the text that will appear at the end of the line.
Are the concepts correct?
In the case of B it could be Testo a capo (i.e. after )
