How to add subtitle under the main title (flow) name?

Hello, just wondering how to add a subtitle under a title? Do I need to go Engrave mode to create a text frame first then go back to Write mode to type in the text?

I’ve do the following:

  • goto File/Project Info
  • click the current ‘show info for’ - dropbox
  • type text in the Subtitle -field
  • goto Engrave
  • click in the Score or edit the Master Page
  • click in the frame with the current title and add {@flowSubtitle@} below the {@flowTitle@}

When I type this post I look in Dorico and see the ‘paragraph styles’ in the menu. Here you can add and edit some things. I don’t know exactly the difference.

Thanks Ccmp, I think I made it. I think The ‘paragraph styles’ is a custom style which you decide what style you want to show after type in the text. The master ‘Master Page’ is kind of like a layout template? I’m not sure if I’m right.

After adding {@flowSubtitle@} to the frame ? How do I make the frame the same size on current page going foward ? It seems the subsequent pages have old small frames , not following the changed frame.

Did you add the subtitle token straight on the page or in the Page Template (in Engrave Mode on the RH side panel)?

If you edited the page template (which updates all pages that use the template), make sure you copied right-to-left or left-to-right (using the buttons at the top of the page template editor) so that both left- and right-facing pages use your updates.

After copying L>R or R>L and you have page numbers on the outer edge, re-position the page number that is now misplaced. I have just spent a lot of time correcting old scores for this.
