Hello, I was doing a piano part and wanted to put Hairpin crescendo starting mp–<f . I can’t seem to get it to work on the new pro!
I select RH first note then mp, its under RH note as desired. then I select hair pin crescendo < it forces me to select notes so even though LH is still active I have to select RH half note etc. Then I want f at end of the bar NOT on the last note in RH (as LH has 16th notes going) The way it works now is it goes to end of bar and i can’t move it anymore? I try but little circle does nothing! LH in piano parts does not always need separate dynamics. It’s a simple task Hair pins should and used to be dragged and set up where i want them with ease. The only way to get it to work with the new pro seems to have to put hairpins and dynamics below LH where pedal goes! I tried ungroup dynamics to free up hairpins but the little circle where you used to select to adjust does nothing. It’s marraid to the notes non-adjustable now. Thus if i un-group f (Forte) then put it before end of measure the hair pin always goes through the f or what ever dynamic you put to end of bar. I call it collisions, Hairpins need to be smart enough NOT to go entirely through dynamics? Old way let you just drag around where ever you need them. Then again I am ignorant to Dorico as still learning. I would love some guidance on how to easily put hair pins where ever i want and dynamics.
It sounds confusing. Is there a way that you can just drag and drop hairpins without being married to notes? I love the auto feature but it should allow me to adjust it afterwards and insert dynamic markings like metso piano, forte, etc… where i want to. Let me know of any tricks you have. I love this program!
Just hit a road block as older version you just dragged hairpins where you want and dynamic markings worked great! Now noooooo… .
