Old fashioned dynamics

I’ve been working with some old scores, and run into some things that I can’t implement.

  • It would be nice to be able to place sotto/mezza voce as a dynamic. If I type Mezza Voce to replace the normal MF dynamic, it comes back MF voce, for instance.

  • I also run into things like poco a poco meno P, which comes out poco meno P a, and of course that route (Immediate Dynamics) excludes the gradual element.

Simplest thing is just to replace the old fashioned with the new, I guess, but I’d prefer not to.

The popover tries to interpret various words, and that might not be appropriate for every case.

Use the Properties panel to set the suffix as you want.

In these situations, create the normal mf dynamic, then use prefix text and hide the intensity mark…

Properties! Of course…
