I have three requests concerning notes with accidentals which span barlines. I know that at least the first of these has already been requested.
- I wish Dorico had an option so that if a note with an accidental spans a barline, the accidental would be automatically restated after the barline.
- If the accidental is restated by using this option or by explicitly showing it in engrave mode, I wish the tie would go around the accidental and end near the notehead rather than ending before the accidental, which looks particularly bad if the tied note spans a system break.
- If the accidental is restated, I wish that a subsequent occurrence of a note with the same pitch in the same measure would no longer show its accidental.
As a convert from Finale to Dorico, I am trying to enter Morceau Symphonique from Rédemption by César Franck into Dorico. This piece has so many occurrences of notes with accidentals spanning barlines that the score utilizes all three of my requests. Finale can handle half of my requests; the cautionary accidentals plug-in can force the accidentals to be restated and the ties end near the noteheads but go through the accidentals rather than around them.
