I’m relatively new to Steinburg so it’s entirely possible I’m just doing something wrong. I have the latest version of Dorico (2.2.10) Mac installed just yesterday. However, when I try to enter a half note, it always gets converted to 2 quarter notes tied together. I cannot remove the tie and the “force duration” option doesn’t seem to have any effect. I created a new/blank project from the solo piano template to use for this example. I then added the time signature (tried both 2/2 and 4/4). Then I added one bar’s worth of notes. I’ve attached a screenshot that shows the issue. The picture shows the notes that I entered. It also shows the two tied notes and that in the left sidebar it’s indicating that it is a half note.
I appreciate any assistance!!
