I’m hugely enjoying John Barron’s terrific series of Discover Dorico videos. One possibility for a future session could involve ties, dynamics and force duration. There is already a good discussion of ties from last May, but I still run into trouble sometimes when I’m entering, say, a crescendo that only goes for part of a long tied note. I’ve tried going invoking the cursor and moving it to where I want a crescendo to start, but then the crescendo is just one beat long. There is probably a more elegant way to do it, but I usually end up just using the scissors.
I don’t know if Force duration has been covered in these hangouts or not, but it might be useful to see a wizard like John using it, discussing when it’s most useful, etc.
