I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, or haven’t fully grasped how force duration works, but I’m having the following issue:
I would like to have a dotted minim (1/2 note) tied to a quaver (1/8 note) in 4/4 time. The note is tremolo (it’s a timpani part). By default Dorico adds the tremolo to the final quaver. In Engrave mode, I remove the tremolo lines using the ‘single stem tremolo’ option in Properties. However Dorico now turns my dotted minim into a minim tied to a crotchet, even though I applied force duration to the dotted minim when I entered it. It looks messy. How can I get a tremolo dotted minim tied to a non tremolo quaver?
