I’m trying to notate a simple gesture, a violin glissando that also has a bouncing bow, so I’d like to notate the starting pitch, and the rhythm inside the glissando. I tried creating the rhythm, then making a glissando between the first and final note, but the spacing is wonky.
Is there a better way to do this?
I’m not sure I get what you mean. Could you post a picture?
Just an idea: what about a rhythmic cue above the system?
I suppose this is what you want (see attachment). Dorico will always offset the notes to the right because it thinks it has to accommodate proper space for the glissando line, because, while we have all the freedom in the world to place our glissandos in Dorico, the most likely case is that it’ll be placed between adjacent notes, where that extra space is needed. All you have to do is to pop into Note Spacing mode and push everything back, I’d say. I don’t know the context, but since this space is added because of the glissando, pushing the next column back all the way won’t interfere with music in other parts.
thanks, I ended up going with LSalgueiro’s suggestion.
