I have the following situation. My piece begins with a tempo marking of Adagio, quarter note = 48. I have chosen this marking because I intend the average tempo during the piece to be 48 BPM. However, my piece begins with a pickup measure that I want Dorico to play a bit slower than the stated tempo marking, at 43 BPM say.
How do I make this change, from 48 BPM to 43 BPM, in the tempo lane without changing the tempo marking as well? Dorico automatically adjusts the tempo marking to Adagio q = 43. And if I try it the other way round, by first making the change in the tempo lane and then creating tempo marking, then the tempo marking destroys the changes I’ve made in the tempo lane!
