Hello, I know this topic has been covered here many times before but I haven’t found a solution to my specific problem among the existing threads…
I’m porting/revising some scores originally created in Sibelius 6, and in this case I want to create a quintuplet for a five-stave percussion instrument (bongos!). Just starting for the moment with two bongos, if I enter five semiquavers quintuplets on the upper bongo and then try to move the last four (or any) to the lower bongo then Dorico rewrites the notes in regular semiquavers / it doesn’t write it as part of the quintuplet.
See attachments for target from Sibelius and result in Dorico.
I’ve read that this issue was due to be addressed in v3.5 but I’m yet to update so this is in v3.1.
Any tips would be welcomed. Since playback within Dorico isn’t important to me, if it’s impossible in v3.1 then I’ll just write the bongo part as a flute or another instrument where this isn’t a problem, though I would like to work it out as a matter of principle, if possible.
