Dotted notes drive me crazy

Dotted notes drive me crazy. Is there a setting to automatically turn off the dot once it has been used? Thank you.

Are you saying that after you’ve added a dotted note, you don’t want to have to change the duration for a note of a different duration…?

@MikeInBoston, If you are trying to input several dotted notes followed by their typical shorter note, (for example dotted quarter followed by eighth), keep in mind that you could input these as all quarter notes. Then with all the notes selected type a dot. This will change the quarter notes into the pattern of quarter note followed by an eighth over this range of notes. Very cool!

At the very least, you will need to specify a different value for the note following the dotted note if that’s what you desire. How else would this work? :slightly_smiling_face:

To answer the OP’s question:

Just re-enter the rhythm (without double-pressing, of course).

So, if you have a dotted quarter selected, press “6”.

Thanks, guys.
