I am engraving parts of the 1948 piece “North Country” by Canadian composer Harry Somers for a doctoral comprehensive exam.
He uses a sffzp regularly in the first movement. See attached picture.
When I type shift-D and then sffzp , I get nothing. And there seems to be no way to create it in the combined dynamics sections. Yes, I can fake it by putting two dynamics together, but this is not very stable as any movement because of note entry or staff sizing un-aligns the two dynamics.
Any chance that this is a bug and will be fixed soon? I believe that composers should be able to enter any dynamic they want and not be ignored by the software?
