Hello Dorico team,
I watched the video “Meet the Dorico Team Behind the Scenes”, quite nice, it was nice to see on several desks the book by Elaine Gold on notation and this encouraged me to push further a feature request, which to me it seems a correction of Dorico’s behaviour.
I have posted a similar thought here, but at that time it was an newbie enquire, now it is more a “feature request” (because now I am a proud owner) and since you do not have a specific forum, I (re)post it here.
Dorico vertical centres dynamic markings on the notehead (p, mf, f, ect) but not when they follow hairpins and are inserted via popover, as in <f to get “crescendo to forte”. In this case the f is centred either on the next unselected note, or just before a rest, or if I end a piece with a crescendo and the last note played fortissimo,Dorico adds a bar and the fff is offset and not under the last note.
I think even Mr. Spock would acknowledge that this is an illogical behaviour.
