Sib. 7.1.3: Customizing the drop down symbol list
Posted by Persephone - 21 Nov 08:14PM
I access the symbols list all the time but I only need a select handful of those symbols most of the time. It's incredibly time consuming to scroll through all the obscure symbols just to pick the ones that I use - is there a way to build a list of the ones you commonly use that can be accessed anytime you start a new score (so you're not having to rebuild a list over and over again?)

If you re-define the Keyboard Shortcut 'Z' to 'Show Symbols dialogue' rather than 'Symbol' you'll get the old, more compact Symbols menu rather than the bloated gallery. Not to mention useful sizing (and other) options that didn't fit the Ribbon ethos. You still have to look for your Symbol, but there's a lot less scrolling required.

Similar regressive options are available for Lines, Time Signatures, Key Signatures...

That is a huge help! Thank you so much. I have spent cumulatively so much time scrolling and scrolling through the other huge gallery!
