plus-minus sign for approximate tempo


I just had to enter a approximate tempo with a plus-minus sign and was not able to do it. May I ask to add this sign.

Here is, what I was not able to reproduce:

I’ve seen this kind of notation at least in several wind band charts.

Thanks for considering.

You can copy/paste it from another program. I used MS Word as that has an insert symbol function.


I’ve always just used c. (circa).

The mathematician in me wonders if the “-138” option means “play the part backwards”.

That probably explains some of the trouble Victor Borge had… :smiley:
