Dividing ties

Hello, is it possible to have dividing ties in Dorico? I think I saw something where Dorico didn’t write upon an item creating an interrupted line, but I do not remember what that was about. I enclose an image from pag. 133 of Behind Bars for reference.

Not without a workaround. I’ve occasionally:

  1. Input a piece of Shift-X text that contains a single space (“ “).
  2. Set its properties so that Avoids Collisions is turned off, and Erase Background is on
  3. Dragged into place in Engrave mode.

Inside the staff it’s fiddly; you may need to get creative and use multiple little text items.
