I would like to have a 2/4 measure start with a 16th rest, followed by 4 8th notes (with the 4th note forming a tie over the bar line into the next measure). Can’t sort out how to make this happen. Any help appreciated.
Nevermind! Finally got it to work using this: https://steinberg.help/dorico_elements/v2/en/dorico/topics/write_mode/write_mode_duration_forcing_t.html?hl=force%2Crest%2Cduration. Not sure what I was doing wrong before, but sometimes you just need to post in the forum to make it work!! LOL
Ok, in case it helps someone else… selecting the duration in step 4 in the above procedure needs to be done EVEN IF THE DURATION YOU WANT IS ALREADY SELECTED AT THAT POINT.
