You can add tempo change text to the score at any point before a metronome mark. Notion automatically calculates the increase or decrease in tempo between the accel. or rit. text and the new tempo at each beat. To place the text on your Music Cursor, enter Edit mode and then press the R key once for rit. and twice for accel. Position the text so its first character is on the beat you first want to affect and either click your mouse or press ENTER. A temporary box appears where you can fine-tune how much you want the beats before the metronome mark to change. Ordinarily, you enter the pace of the target metronome mark, but you can use a different number if you want the change to be more subtle.

Then either press ENTER or click anywhere in the score area away from the temporary box.
