Score question: bass note smaller than chord symbol?


Recommended Posts


When entering chords,  is there a way to have the bass note (as opposed to the main chord symbol) appear a little smaller than the chord symbol?  In the text layout window I see an option for chord root and chord extensions, but not for the bass note. Here's what I'm seeing now, and thanks.

You can put the bass note in the lower section rather than in the bass note box. This will let the extension font drive its size.  You can also enter it by putting in C/E,  ( comma at end) - this will create C as the chord and /E as the extension.   If you type in C/E - /E goes to bass note  - if you type in C/E, - bass note got to lower extensions.  Here is an ex exaggerated smaller lower extension font with a slash chord.  image.png.ed91e68760d39ca19dd6f29ccda4bd44.png
