I am trying to finish the edition of a long project started in Dorico 1. Almost all the endings consist of an eighth note (left hand) under a eight rest (right hand). After writing dozens of flows without major problems, in the last rest of this flow I can not find a way to get it. Do what I do it ends up dividing in two sixteenths rest.
Am I missing something?
I was able to enter your example without trouble - but I don’t know if that helps you or not! I put no meter in my version, and inserted a barline after I had entered all the notes.
Then, if you wish you can click on the left-hand rests you want to remove, and select Remove Rests from the Edit menu.
You should be able to sort this out using Force Duration:
- Select the first of the two 16th rests, and type Shift+N to show the caret.
- Type , (comma) to engage rest input.
- Type O to engage Force Duration.
- Type 5 to choose eighth.
- Type Y to input a rest.
Thanks Stephen. That worked fine in the more than 50 previous flows. But not in this one. I suppose something that has to do with having been created in version 1.
OK Daniel. Step 5 (Y for rest) is what I was doing wrong. I was trying to force a figure and then deleting it, but it was divided into two rests. Thanks!
