Flipping ties

This is a wonderful decision , however, we are two weeks from 2023 and this is still on the waiting list I guess.
I hope to see this coming real soon.
The “F” sometimes flips the slur but at times will also flip the entire figuration hence this is not a solution.

Be careful, what you have selected, before you press “F”. If you select notes as well, the stem directions will be flipped as well. You can flip a lot of items: slurs, dynamics, stems, text … Very powerful!


“F” for flip IS the solution. Just don’t click other elements, and they won’t also flip.

The concept of flipping was perfected in Ancient Greece, after the great philosopher Euflipedes first proposed it.

This bit is really Aesculating!


Well sorry to say but this is not the solution, when I choose a slur it selects it’s attaching note so they F together…
Also the fact that when one wants to change slur direction one has to press a button 1st to activate the function.
I truly believe a simple elegant solution should be there.
There is no point justifying something which is flaw.
No need to reply this - thank you.

If you click a slur and only a slur, and then press F, it flips.

Is there any chance you were selecting a tie instead of a slur? Attach the project with the location of the slur and I will have a go.

I suspect @DanielMuzMurray is onto something here. Also, selecting in engrave mode most definitely won’t select the note, even if it’s a tie. Regardless, you can also set jump bar shortcuts for filtering slurs (“fs” for me) and it makes pretty quick work of it all.


Sorry yes - I was referring to ties all this discussion… my apologies.


great idea, working the ties in engrave mode with F works for me - thanks.
( but I’d wish to do everything in write mode and being forced to change modes, yet you gave me a work around - thank you for that. )

@dspreadbury, may I request moving posts 23–end of this thread to a new thread, since they turn out not to be about slurs at all.
