I’m transcribing Mozart K. 550 (the famous symphony in G minor) to learn beginning orchestration. Mozart marks Alla Breve, so Dorico does certain things in response.
Dotted half note is transformed into half tied to quarter:
Quarter note and eighth note is a dotted quarter
I can force change the values, of course, or if I change from alla breve to 4/4 it normalizes instantly.
Cut time is useful for certain things, but there was one occasion earlier when I just went with 4/4 to avoid fussing with redoing some basics, for I really prefer seeing the 4/4 default style.(I’m sure most players also don’t want to see a dotted quarter note rest even in alla breve.) Just wondering if there was an override.
