Hi all, and thanks for the suggestions! There’s indeed a lot of ways to customize and change how ties behave, but as I understand this will affect all other ties in the score as well, and I only want to change the behavior of l.v ties. I don’t even know if this is considered ‘correct’ but I would like to have the two l.v. ties aligned vertically in instances like my example above.
What do you all think? It might just be my personal preference, but I feel that they need to be aligned. I don’t find this a problem with normal ties as they connect to the next note. As of now, I see to options:
- Lengthening the stem so that the l.v tie tucks underneath (Ex. 1)
- Moving the bottom l.v tie manually in Engrave mode (Ex. 2)
What do you think? Is there any specific rule regarding this? I know that Gould works with some flexibility in the length of the note tail (flag), but I don’t think it’s possible to change this in Dorico as of yet?
