mano sinistra and mano destra hooked line

Hello community,

is there a way to have this little m.s. m.d. hooked line being attached to notes
or do i have to fiddle around with smufl and the text tool?

There’s no built-in support for this kind of bracketing just yet, though it is planned. I think that using the glyphs from the ‘Keyboard techniques’ range is probably the best approach for now: select the text items and switch off ‘Avoid collisions’ in the Properties panel to make it easier to position them in Engrave mode.

If playback isn’t an issue for you then you can actually repurpose the (sustain) pedal brackets, like so:

thanks, great idea…
