At the risk of embarrassment, I hope this is a simple fix and I’m just overlooking something. I’m trying to get the following rhythm to notate as a half note on beat 2 by default, instead of tied quarters:
It’s not a Force Durations issue (I entered a half note anyway), and I’ve got the appropriate setting checked in Notation Options, at least it would appear that way to me:
Am I missing something? I’ve had this problem before in cut time (2/2), but I assumed that was a function of the meter, or a setting I haven’t quite grasped because Dorico has so many different individual exceptions for these kinds of settings. I’ve never not had it work in common time though. I even went through the Notation Options and basically set them all to notate everything as one note wherever I could and it’s still making it tied quarters. Is there another setting somewhere that could be overruling this one? What am I missing?
