My Dorico learning journey continues. I need some help here, because I’m not grasping the difference between linked and grouped dynamics, how Dorico decides to automatically link or group, and what the implications are when I try to go through my score to align the dynamics, only to be thwarted by a bunch of automatically linked or grouped ones that resist my efforts until I go back into write mode and unlink and/or ungroup them, after which they will cooperate with my alignment campaign. Am I then losing something by not having them linked or grouped anymore? If so, what?
Sorry if this is a bit ranty, but I’m getting quite frustrated. I’m sure there is rhyme and reason to it, but at the moment it is a mystery to me.
Can anyone help me understand this better? Sorry if I haven’t read the manual properly, but I did try.
