FR: "trailing text" in tempo markings

So one can have something like this:


I’m envisioning something like dynamics, where there are prefix/suffix properties.

Yes, I know using some of the notehead fonts foating around I could fake this in text, but I prefer not to.

Semantically speaking, “the trailing text is more playing technique than tempo” is what the Dorico AI is likely thinking.

That said, I have not problem with your request to allow trailing text after the M.M. marking.

Well, you don’t want to fake it with text, but it’s the only way to get all this marking formatted like this!

Can I plus one this as a feature request. It makes perfect sense to be able to enter:

“q = 57 or faster”

It is so common in scores, this sort of indication.

In the next version of Dorico it will be possible on a per-tempo basis to swap the order of the metronome mark and the following text, so you’ll be able to achieve simple markings with metronome marks followed by text easily.


Perhaps a most flexible option would be to add a token for the current mm, so one could turn off display of the MM, and then drop the token in exactly where desired?
