How can I add in a rolled chord/arpeggio sign next to a chord?
I can't find it.....
Also, what is the proper musical term for one of those squiggly lines next to a chord? I was never told....I was just told how to play it.

(It's a type of staff line you create.)

Ah okay, thanks so much.
And does anyone know the proper musical name...rather than me calling it the squiggly line before a chord that means to roll it?

It's called a broken chord.

I think you are refering to a glissandro...

nonono, I know a glissando. It's the same squiggly line as a gliss, except it's used right before a chord, is straight up and down [glissando's, at least as I've seen them, are slanted] and it means to roll the chord.
Ozor says it's just called a broken chord which is what I had been calling it....I just didn't know if there was a more technical term

According to Dolmetsch, it's simply called an "arpeggio."

Hm. I assumed it would be something other than arpeggio, but hey, now I know! Thanks,
