Can't do system break mid-measure in Dorico 4

I installed Dorico 4 and found that I can no longer do system breaks mid-measure. Previously, Dorico could insert system breaks at any rhythmic position. However, in Dorico 4, when I do a system break at beat 4 of a measure, the system break occurs on beat 1.

There’s an option now for this. Read the Version history or watch Anthony Hughes’ video about Layout.

There’s now an option for whether it should ;snap’ to the nearest bar somewhere.

You should still be able to move the Break using Alt - arrows, along the duration grid.

Here is the relevant page in the manual for this option.

Great, thank you. That worked!
