I remember that I once posted the same question, but I can’t find it back. Sorry.
I still have the problem that 75% of the actors I’m working with can’t read music notation very well.
A beat count above every bar helps them a lot.
There is no solution so far for that in Dorico as far as I know.
So I created 4 Playing Techniques:
1 (strange enough I can’t use ‘1’ for pop-over text / I CAN use ‘2’ ‘3’ and ‘4’ but not ‘1’ - it’s not shown in the score. So I use ‘1a’ as Pop-Over Text. Then it’s shown in the score.
That works. The playing techniques are positioned above the beats. Copy- Paste…etc…all fine.
But the horizontal alignment doesn’t work. Even if I change it in the Engraving Options, the numbers above notes are always positioned a bit higher.
Any help / advice for that?
