I’m using Dorico 3.5 elements to write a piece for piano.
I want to add dynamics so that the left hand plays quieter than the melody in the right hand so I want to add a the piano symbol (p) to my bar clef but notice it also softens the volume of the treble clef. When I add forte to my treble clef, it seems to only play the first note louder and the rest is piano.
I’ve uploaded an image that clearly shows what I mean: Capture — ImgBB
I used ppp instead of p as it puts an emphasis on the volume and shows that also the notes in the treble clef are played using ppp
