You need to remove the tuplets before you apply the halve duration , then re-apply the tuplets where needed. Everything will work itself out.
So if I have nothing but tuplets, remove them all first? Really? Create a hot mess first, and “Everything will work itself out”? That certainly has not been MY experience! Sounds easier to just re-enter the passage by hand.
Things like fermatas are tied to grid positions, not notes. (Why would you want this? Well, you might not be halving the durations of notes in all players…)
And I MIGHT be halving the durations of notes in all players. My proposal is that this whole feature needs to be more nuanced. I’m proposing a dialog box that gives this feature more clarity.
Dorico is extremely flexible about time signatures. But, if you are halving the durations of just some players, would you really want the overall time signatures to change?
Sometimes I do. Sometimes I don’t. All I’m saying is that this whole feature needs to be more nuanced. I’m proposing a dialog box that gives this feature more clarity.
Why would they? Again, you are presuming the tool is applied to all the players - but it is not designed for that purpose
Why not? My purpose seems like a perfectly reasonable one. Sometimes I want to apply it to all players, sometimes not. All I’m saying is that this whole feature needs to be more nuanced. I’m proposing a dialog box that gives this feature more clarity.
(BTW, I’m imagining that ‘halving a tempo marking’ means that “q = 60” is changed to “e = 60”, and not that text like “Lento” or “Allegro” is changed.)
In my case, I have NEVER wanted to use this feature for just a few players, I have ALWAYS wanted to respell a passage from, say, 3/2 to 3/4 for all players (as I stated in my initial use case description.) I understand that other users may want to use it differently. Of course they will! That’s the whole point of things like dialog boxes in which you can select the details of how you want the feature to behave.
I think this feature is awesome, and on the right track, but IMHO it needs some love to support more use cases.
Halve Durations Dialog Box:
[ ] Halve tuplets (3:2 q become 3:2 e)
[ ] Halve time signatures (3/2 become 3/4)
[ ] Halve tempi (“q = 60” becomes “e = 60”)
[ ] Keep fermati with original notes
