Ties without an ending

Is there a way to get this tie idea without spending hours in engrave mode? It was really easy in sib. I’m talking about the 4th beat in measure 108 in harp part a

Hi @aural_sandpaper
You can use Laissez vibrer tie in the properties panel and decide how long you want the Laissez vibrer ties in engraving options.

Thanks for the fast reply. Works perfectly.

If you don’t want to change the Engraving option (which affects all lv ties), you can simply set the end offset value in the Engrave Properties panel.


Glad I could help.

[Edit: oppsss @Janus was faster with the manual solution :slight_smile: ]

since the mentioned option (Laissez vibrer ties minimal lenght) is global, and if you need sometimes to use the manual method as an alternative, here below I show how it takes only a couple of seconds. :slight_smile:

-In Engrave mode make a Lasso selection with control/command and dragging the mouse, of the Laissez vibrer ties
-control/command click on the right control points of each tie
-move the end control point to the right with shift+alt+right arrow [what coincides with the suggestion of @Janus , just in another way]

Nice info. — I’d just like to mention that l.v. is the normal mode for Harp. You don’t have to indicate that. There’s a symbol for when you want strings stopped by hand.
