Force Divisi Condensing Stem Direction

Hi all,

I have a cello section currently div, where some notes are played in unison, and some are not. I have switched on condensing and the parts are correctly condensed onto a single stave, however, I would like to force Dorico to display the top div part as stems up, and the lower div part as stems down (even when playing in unison).

Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction please? I’ve spent the last hour looking through manuals and Googling, but can’t seem to find anything…

Thanks! Wes

Use a condensing change to specify who plays together and how the voices (and stem direction) are arranged.

Don’t forget to change back when you want Dorico to resume automatic condensing.

Thanks very much Derrek - I see that this is done now in the ‘manual condensing’ section of the Condensing Change dialogue. Hoorah! :slight_smile:
