Remove notehead for glissando notation?

Hi all,

Has anyone figured out a way to have a blank notehead, that is to say just a stem, to show a value mid-glissando? For those of you with Behind Bars on your desk it’s page 145 under “Durations of more than one note-value”.


I’m afraid that this isn’t possible as yet. People have suggested changing the colour of a notehead such that it is completely translucent, which you can do by way of the Color option in the Common section of Properties, but this isn’t really the same as having a stem with no notehead on the end of it.

Is there a better way to do this in Dorico 4?

There’s no automatic support for this kind of notation in Dorico 4, no.
