I’m trying to edit the grace notes in Play mode, since the automatic playback is not working for the particular piece I’m working on.
First problems is, I can’t have different automatic durations for each flow. So, if a flow requires slower grace notes and another faster ones, I can’t set them separately.
But when editing the length in Play mode, Dorico tries to force interpretation. I can impose my interpretation by adjusting both the start and end of the notes.
Is there a way to prevent automatic interpretation of grace notes? Better yet, if on a single flow level?
No, there are no per-flow options for grace note playback, Paolo. The available options are in Playback Options, and they’re project-wide.
Thank you, Daniel. I’ll see if I can manually edit all of them in Play mode. But I’m not sure Dorico is not changing my manual edits afterwards.
Daniel, please let me add a feature request: a Property to decide if a grace note is of tight or loose. The playback engine should humanize according to this option.
Again on grace note playback. If I manually modify their length in Play mode, will Dorico again change them automatically, if I change the general preference for their length?
I think that there is a bug in the way grace notes and surrounding notes are edited.
For example, if I have a long note followed by grace notes, I’m not able to freely adjust the length of the long note. I shorten it, and Dorico insists to restore the original length, or go over it.
