Hi. Three questions that have come to mind on a recent project.
- In the attached screenshot, all of the notes are eighth notes with stems hidden. The f#—>e seems to have been spread out because of the lyric “weighed.” Is there a setting to minimize the impact of unusually long syllables mixed in with short ones?
- Tick marks and half-bars at the far right edge of a system should be held from the edge just a bit in the scores I’m working on. So far, I’ve lucked out that everything has ended up breaking the bar mid-measure and I haven’t had to sort it out in Illustrator. This screenshot was of a past project I did in Finale, where I just set the barline to none, and added the tick or half-bar as an expression.
- Can the details of the tick and short/half barline be adjusted? I don’t see it in the Engraving Options. Specifically, to control the vertical length of each. Dorico’s defaults will work if necessary, but slight modification would be preferable.
