I just started engraving Ravel’s Bolero. Ran into a problem on page 2, measure 9. He notates a staccato and a tenuto at the same time. Surely Ravel knows best (see screenshot 12:57pm). Yet when I click staccato it turns of tenuto, and vice versa. Is there a way around this?
Also, a question for the Notation Options experts: There seems to be no Notation/Note Grouping setting that allows me to tie the notes as seen in the flute melody (see screenshot 1:15pm). I have to use Force Duration, which I also find counterintuitive since Ravel is a master orchestrator, so his notation style should be considered to be 100% correct, and the software shouldn’t be fighting me on this.
Feature request: A “Force Articulation” setting or “Force Everything” button that would resolve issues like this. For example, regarding articulation, for brass writing in contemporary music, it is not uncommon to have an accent on the first and last beat of a tied note. This, unless I’m mistaken, is impossible at the moment.
