I am in a situation where I need a lot of fingering notation for the piano, where the thumb is used to play two notes at once. This is usually indicated by « 1[ » to the left of the note.
Dorico’s built-in solution is not what I need: the fingering with the bracket is below/above the note; by forcing it to the left in the engraving options, the bracket disappears, leaving two ones.
The solution I am currently going for is to create a new vertical line which does the job quite well.
However, I was browsing through the options and this forum, I do not find a way, to avoid the gap that Dorico inserts to left of the vertical line. I have found an option for the right gap, but not for the left.
Ideally, I would have the same horizontal output as without the bracket; that is, the vertical line would not take up any horizontal space.
I am open to any suggestions how to deal with this properly. Maybe there is a better solution, than disguising this fingering scenario with a vertical line.
