What is a mordent?

A Mordent is a rapid alternation of a principal note with the one above or below. A Mordent always starts and ends with the written note. This ornament can either be Short (alternation of three notes) or Long (five or more), depending on the notation above the pitch.

How to add or remove a mordent?

First, select the desired note. Then, in the Ornament toolbar, click on the Mordent icon. You can change the length and direction of your mordent as you wish.
