How to draw lines/curvy slurs in Dorico


I am wondering how can we draw the straight lines (not horizontal nor vertical) like the ones in red circles below?

And for some Debussy pieces, is it possible to draw these curvy slurs in Dorico? How can we achieve it?

Hi. For the first ones, the line tool (with start and end set to notehead) is perfect. For the curvy lines, the slur tool is the appropriate one (especially because those are… slurs). You’ll need to tweak them in Engrave mode, add some nodes when necessary. All in all, much longer than usual stuff in Dorico but definitely doable.


To wit, they are called “segments” and you can add as many as you need. And you can see from the screenshot that each segment is individually manipulable.
