I have a question regarding entering gradual dynamics.
I know that I can select a note and enable note input, and then enter a gradual dynamic. Because the note is still selected after note input is enabled, if I apply a hairpin, it extends the hairpin only until the end of the note. In many cases I don’t want this and I want to be able to press space etc after entering the hairpin in the popover.
It seems as though I have to find some other object to select before note input is enabled so that, one, I can start note input at a particular place and, two, not have a note selected.
Is there a way to “unselect” a note after note input is enabled? Or, is there an optimal method for beginning note input at a specific location?
