Dorico 5 Pro - note function in chords


I’m currently using Dorico 5 Pro for my jazz piano studies. I want to annotate each note within a chord with its corresponding degree. For instance, next to each note of a Dm7 chord, I’d like to label them as follows: D “1”, F “3”, A “5”, C “b7”.

I’m aware that I can input these numbers using Option-X and then adjust their placement in engrave mode. However, whenever I make changes to the page layout, the numbers seem to shift around. Is there a more efficient method to ensure that the numbers remain tied to each note consistently?

little example in picture.

Thank you,

If you turn off Avoid Collisions for each one before positioning it, they should stay put.


thanks Mark, that worked!
