I’ve just upgraded to Dorico 3.5 and started working on an orchestral score.
I’ve noticed a very annoying and strange behavior when copy and pasting (also when using the explode function).
i.e.: when I say write a melody into the BassClarinet staff and then copy it to Flute1 staff (using cmd+c/cmd+v), Dorico seems to copy the melody into a new voice (in the Flute staff) and this messes up the prior Flute part, creating all these additional rests and inverted stems (which only disappear again if I delete the freshly copied part again).
This also happened when I exploded a Horn part to 4 individual Horns; it just does it with 2 of the horns; sort of inserting them into a second voice.
I’m not able to make out a pattern behind this… sometimes copy/paste works and sometimes it doesn’t and it messes up the parts written before…
I have no idea; maybe there is a setting that fixes this? Or maybe it’s a bug? Maybe there’s something I’m missing here?.. copy paste worked always perfectly in Dorico 3.
Please help! It’s very frustrating and it keeps me from working… because I can’t copy and paste stuff… I can’t possibly rewrite everything just because copy and paste doesn’t work properly… and I sort of have to be able to trust the copy/paste function without controlling whether that has just messed up the rest of the score…
Thank you for your help!!
