Is there anyway to make a real diminished symbol in Dorico Elements? When I type in dim all I get is a minor flat 5 chord. I see in Dorico pro you can use Engrave mode to change that but surely there must be some fix for a standard chord symbol in Elements?
In short, no. That option is in Engraving Options.
If you want to post a file here, I’ll make that change and post it back to you. Then you can use that as a “blank” for future projects.
I found out you can use o7 translating to dim7. This is fine for me. However I do appreciate the offer. The minor flat 5 symbol in place of a standard diminished chord symbol (o or dim) seems like it should be changed in the future though.
