How write 2 eighth notes (not tied) above a quarter note

Hi, I’m new to Dorico (5), trying to place 2 eighth notes (not tied) above a quarter note. It’s a chord with the top note (8th) moving to another 8th note pitch. Anyone know how to do this? Thank you. Sulaine

Hi @Sulaine and welcome to the Forum.

It seems you need to write the two eight notes in a new voice. In this case this video can be helpful:

And here a video about chords (but I think is not what you need for the eight notes line that you are referring to, but is helpful anyway :slight_smile: ):

Christian - Thank you. That was very helpful!


Thank you for your assistance!
