There is support for accents and ghost notes but no support for text-based dynamic markings. You can add these yourself using the text tool but you will be limited to using the built-in font and won't be able to indicate crescendos.

Hi Richard,
Many thanks for the reply mate. I wasn't aware you could reposition the title editor, I wonder if there's a way to add fonts within the software folder, as I downloaded a free font associated with sheet music yesterday.

Yes, you can reposition and resize the text elements and allow them to either overlap or displace the music notation.

All fonts are hardcoded right now so you can't replace them. At some point we would like to switch to "SMuFL" which is a new standard for handling music fonts but that probably won't happen for a long time.

That's great, many thanks for the info. I couldn't initially work out how to add text ha ha, but realized you just hover the cursor in the space you want to add a title etc and press 'T'. Cheers!
