The Soundslice editor supports several different types of text in notation. Here’s info on the different types of texts and how to use them.
When it comes to general-purpose text, our system supports two types: inner text and outer text. Both can be either above or below notation. What’s the difference?
1. The positioning is different:
2. The word wrapping is different:
3. The default font is different:
Otherwise, the two types of texts work the same. You can change the font, font size and italics in either case.
1. Select the note or rest at which the text should be aligned.
2. In the editor sidebar’s “Text” panel , click one of the four text icons:
3. At the left of your screen, replacing the editor’s sidebar, you’ll see a place for you to enter the text:
(Note: If you’re on a narrow screen, you’ll see a slightly different interface. Instead of a section overlaying the editor’s sidebar, you’ll see a full-screen interface.)
As you enter text here, you’ll see your notation update immediately. You can also change its size, set its font style and toggle italics.
To edit text, just click on it in your notation. The text-entry interface will appear at left, and you can make changes.
To delete text, click on it in your notation to make the text-entry interface appear at left. Then just delete the text and click “Done.”
Text is positioned and word-wrapped automatically, depending on your screen dimensions and current zoom level. There’s no way to move text or set a specific bounding box — but this is something we’d like to add in the future.
Heavens, no. Use the proper fingerings feature for that. This will give you some nice extra features, and the look/layout will likely be better.
No. Use the proper tempo markings feature for that.
