dynamics linking inexplicably

Hi all,

Sometimes Dorico seems to “link” a dynamic marking I enter, so that I cannot delete or enter a hairpin without also entering or deleting for, say, the entire woodwinds or strings.

That shouldn’t be. Are you:

  1. selecting a note to start from
  2. selecting a note to finish on
  3. entering SHIFT D
  4. then entering something like mp < f
  5. pressing

If so, you should not be experiencing what it seems you are…

Yes, that’s precisely what I’m doing, and then I’ll get, say 5 of the dynamic figure entered.


I’m sorry; I agree, that is odd and not the expected behaviour.

Can you attach a project in which this is happening, ashert?
