I’m finally trying out Dorico SE after working with Sibelius 4 since 2005. I was writing out a lead sheet with Dorico yesterday and I was enjoying it. I closed my session and opened it up again today to complete my lead sheet…
As you can see in the screen shot, I got to bar 23, and suddenly Dorico didn’t want to put in tied eighth notes over beat 3. I tried deleting the bar and rewriting it, and then I tried copying and pasting a similar passage from another part of the music. I don’t understand why Dorico is insisting on writing a quarter note where there should be two tied eighth notes. I was using step input with the computer keyboard.
As you can see, Dorico wrote bar 21 correctly. Has anyone else encountered this quirk?
