Chord diagram fingerings at start of flow

The new option to show chord diagram fingerings at start of flow does not work for me.
Is there an additional setting to adjust?

Hello,
Same problem for me.

I can’t make it work either (the tick box on Layout Options appears to do nothing).

@Lillie_Harris chord diagram fingering does not appear to have made it yet into theD4 manual for ordinary chord diagrams, let alone those at the start of a flow. Can you offer any clues?

I recommend that you refer to the Version History, updated this week for 4.0.20 and linked in Daniel’s pinned post in the forum.

I followed those instructions to the letter, and nothing happened! Fingering does appear on the diagrams in the part, but not at the start of the flow.

Works OK here!

Hi Daniel,

I downloaded your file, no fingerings at start of flow …

I opened your file and this is what I see…
ds-fingerings
No fingerings on either diagram (and yes, I’ve paid my sub to upgrade to D4!).

Looks exactly the same here.

I can get the fingerings to show on the chord diagram for the player but not on the diagram at start of flow when the settings in Layout Options > Chord Symbols and Diagrams > Chord Diagrams are set as follows:
Show fingerings in chord diagrams > Fingerings position: - At end of string (Inside dot works also)
Show chord diagrams used at start of flow - checked
Show fingerings in chord diagrams at start of flow - checked

Interestingly - @dspreadbury and this might be a bug - with Show chord diagrams used at start of flow checked, when I set Maximum number of chord diagrams per row to 0 and clicked Apply, Dorico crashed immediately. Every time I tried it, it crashed. It also happens in Dorico 3.5.12.

I’m also experiencing the same problem.

Sorry for the delay in coming back to this thread.

@stevenjones01, thanks for letting me know about the crash – I will make sure we add some protection against specifying zero as the maximum number of chord diagrams per row.

As yet I’m unable to reproduce the problem reported by others in this thread where activating Show fingerings in chord diagrams at start of flow does not work. Note that it is the option Show fingerings in chord diagrams at start of flow that has to be activated, and not the (similarly, but not identically named) option Show fingerings in chord diagrams at the top of the Chord Diagrams section.

Here’s one that fails.

I will look further into this.
