I promise I’m getting better… I started two threads today but then changed my mind, powered through, and figured it out. But now I’m stuck.
I started to try to add my first slashes. I added generic comping slashes, no problem, then decided to try rhythmic slashes.
The 1/16 note slash at the beginning of Bar 19 was added by accident so I tried to delete it. I can’t. First off, notice the grid. The note entry is set for 1/16 notes, which I selected while making rhythmic slashes in bar 18. But the grid is 1/8 notes and when I move the carat using the arrow, it skips over the 1/16 notes in bar 18. No matter what duration of note I chose, the grid stays on 1/8 notes.
I have tried searching Google and here for ‘How to delete a slash in Dorico’. I have used Shift-Alt-V to change the little note beside the carat to the slash symbol. I get multiple versions, with a 1,2 or 3 written beside it. But I cannot select any of the slashes and delete them. Whenever I click in the bar on top of a slash, the carat indicator changes from slash to note immediately.
I used the drop-down Write–>Create Slash Voice but again, as soon as I try to click on a slash, the cursor jumps to being a note again.
Strangely, even when the cursor shows the ‘note’ symbol, if I hover over a rest, I can see a greyed-out slash, but I move that over one note to an actual slash and it doesn’t light up in orange
Somehow I can’t get Dorico to understand that I want to be in slash mode and deal with the existing slashes. If I could light up one of the slashes in orange, I could maybe figure it out.
