How to set this bar of Haydn

Cannot one simply move prolongation dots exactly where one wants them in Dorico?

No, unfortunately not. You can move them along the X axis, but not Y. I might be misremembering, but I thought there was a thread where Daniel said this was due to the complications involved with rhythm dot consolidation.

If that is correct, it would be another show-stopper for me. I guess one could work around it graphically with a text dot.

It is the same in Sibelius with dots. No vertical option. Frustrating. I want the dot in the space above a lot more often than these programs do. Fred, I don’t think it’s because it’s complicated for them to allow; I think it’s a policy.

I’d love to have this functionality too. In Finale you can just use the Dot Tool and move it anywhere you please. I don’t know if it’s a matter of “allowing” it in Dorico though, or if it just has never been prioritized enough to be implemented.

Too many limitations…
