I’m in the process of transitioning from Sibelius to Dorico at the moment. So far things seem great. But I was wondering about a few things, the first of which is a note spacing question I couldn’t easily find the answer to. I’m making a score in Sibelius now that has somewhat complex contrapuntal rhythms. For ease of reading, I want the spacing of each beat to be exactly the same, so that the spacing of the notes across the whole bar accurately reflects their duration/speed. In Sibelius, to achieve this, I fill the entire bar in one of the staffs in a hidden voice with 256th note sextuplets. It’s a bit ridiculous, but, it gets the job done, because these will be smaller than any other duration in the bar, so Sibelius will default to equally space these and then put everything else in the right place. A screenshot from Sibelius, with hidden objects shown in grey, is here:
Is there a way to achieve the same result in Dorico, yet, without manually moving everything around (with questionable accuracy, too!)?
