If I’m not mistaken, there is no way to override Dorico’s behaviour that it picks quarter note for the rhythmic value when note entry mode is invoked in an empty bar. In my workflow, this results in countless extra key clicks for changing the rhythmic value back to what it was. It’s quite annoying because it’s constant correcting of a wrong value.
Could a Note Input preference be considered in a future update? “Remember rhythmic value when re-entering Note Entry mode”?
