Dorico 4.3 Where is the new f"Force Duration" option?

I can’t seem to find the new “Force Duration” option in 4.3. It doesn’t appear to be in the Notation Options library as indicated in the release notes.


I found it! It is not in the library but in the note input section of the preferences.

Thanks for adding this feature. This was one of the very few annoyances in Dorico. When copying old editions, it is very helpful in inputting things exactly, including mistakes and inconsistencies in the original printed edition. It makes proof-reading easier.


Love this new feature, but why is it only working when inputting notes, not while editing notes?

Probably because the existing notes already have a force duration status.
