In playback, I’m getting the shape I want, but the dynamic is starting at F and reducing to MF (cc 1 value 64), whereas I’m expecting it to end at F having started like a marcato increase. (The actual marcato patch I’m using drops off too fast.)
What I want, and what I would handwrite, is F:Fz, since one is absolute and the other relative (or so I believe). But if I add an F to the parts here, it appears beneath the Fz.
Thanks Derrek. That would work, but I think the dynamic needs to be visible. On further experimentation, with the dynamic in place, playback is what I’d originally intended. Assuming Dorico implements standard practice, I wonder why it looks so odd:
