Editing guitar tabs in Dorico for iPad

Hello. How can I edit the string location of the automatically generated tabs?

You can change the String property in the Properties panel.

I’m probably missing something here, but I’m still unable to find an easy way to change the assigned string on an iPad Pro with no external keyboard. N and M are suggested in the Dorico for iPad manual. These work fine on the desktop version, but I can’t figure out how to show the onscreen keyboard on the iPad.

Can somebody help please?

I think you’d need an external keyboard to use the key commands on the iPad. You can still use the Properties panel (Notes and Rests group > String menu), which is the third option listed on the page linked above.

Thanks Lillie,

I’ve found it in properties now. I’ll maybe think of using an external keyboard if I make more use of the iPad.

I’ve just realised that I can just use the guitar fretboard to enter notes, Tab is then exactly as I want. Obvious but magic.
