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.

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?

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,
