I’ve saved up images of a few spacing-related issues that I’ve come across over time. The point is not criticism of the software or anything like that, Dorico is great and if any of these can be useful to your team all the better.
#1: Common behavior with grace notes. Slurs with grace notes most of the time need manual adjustments anyway.
#2-4: Accidental obstructed due to notes/rests in other voice. With some polyrhythmic combinations, the spacing system is not perfect.
#5: Tremolo stem doesn’t take into account the accidental’s placement.
#6: Spacing doesn’t give more room as to not obstruct the rhythm dot.
#7: Measure is in 6/8 time. Here the first G on the lower voice is on the first beat (with the tremolo chord), notation-wise it’s correct behavior I think. But no spacing is accounted for the following D and the slur which are squished together.
#8: Accidental bb obstructed by the preceding flag.
#9: Commonly happens when writing arpeggios crossing staves for harp parts etc, spacing doesn’t always account for the stems when crossing staves like this.
#10: Slightly different issue, but I could never solve why these grace notes would not want to move before the repeat barline when the option is set?
