Hi Dorico Users,
I am just asking if anyone has created a pitch bend symbol for strings or also a special repeating pitch bend. I am looking for something I can use in a score which has Klezmer or Eastern European style of string playing. I notice that there is some standard guitar notation for various pitch bends but nothing definite for violins and cellos.
First I am interested to know what the standard notational symbols would be for these effects if they exist. If there is no such symbol or no such symbol in Dorico I would then have to invent it and then create shape as a glyph. I was wondering if anyone has an experience in this and can provide guidance.
As far as I know I can not create the shape directly in Dorico (is that actually true?). If that is the case, does anyone know of an easy application on the MacOS that would allow me to create the graphic. I am not into Adobe right now.
Once I have the shape in the right format it seems like it would be relatively easy to make the custom symbol in Dorico.
