Indeed, the Symbols should be used only in special cases that need no playback.
All ornaments can be constructed from the 2nd Keypad (F9):
- Under the / and * keys of the numeric Keyboard, you'll find the two types of ornaments.
- You can add as much notes as you want
- With the keys of the 1st Keypad (F8), you can select the rhythmic values of the ornament
- Also, if you like, you can add a slur to the ornament, just as you would do with normal notes: hit S (and stretch with the Space Bar).
This type of ornament WILL play back.
Let me know if this helped.
Be well, Zap
