Instrument Change Labels for Brass

Hi all,

Is there a way to have instrument change labels show just the key that is being changed to:

e.g. for a Horn part, it might say ‘in F’ or ‘in Eb’ rather than ‘Horn in F’ or ‘Hn. in Eb’

I know you can override the text in properties in engrave mode but this doesn’t work with smufl glyphs like the flat symbol meaning this isn’t a solution for all cases at the moment. For the time being, I can just fake it using Shift X text but this feels very ‘un-Dorico’ so wondering if there is a better solution!

Thanks for your help!

Welcome to the forum, Chris. No, at the moment there’s no built-in feature for this, but it’s an interesting idea and I’ll make a note of it for possible future consideration.

No shift-X needed. I got it to work with a text override…just need to paste in this character: ♭

Nice Ed!

Daniel - thanks! Would be a great option to have - it’s quite common in lots of brass and wind parts - especially opera!
