Adding Tremolo on EXTRA notes in a bar

I am currently digitally inputting an already existing piece. In the original version, it has dotted half notes with a tremolo in between them in 3/4 time. No matter what I do, Dorico is unable to allow me to put these dotted half notes in the same bar. Is there a way to override this issue and achieve the same appearance as in the original version?

You need to use force duration to enter two dotted quarters and then apply the tremolo.

I tried, and this is the result I get. :cry:

You need to start from bar 1 to get bar 2…


Thank you it worked!! So I need to make them dotted quarter notes first? interesting…

Yes, it’s a peculiarity of dotted notes.
