Is there a way I can make second note (B) look like a dotted 1/8th note rather than a 1/16th tied to an 1/8th and have that as a default?
I feel it is something in the notations options and probably simple but I can’t find anything that works.
I just realized I can input the dotted 1/8th note using ‘force duration’ but I wondered if there was a way to have that set as a default.
No, but if this pattern repeats frequently, just copy/paste it and use lock duration (L) to repitch it as necessary.
In preferences/note input and editing you can click to keep force duration on permanently as a workaround.
