Still finding my way around Dorico.
I far prefer entering notes with the mouse/pointer.
- 1 - single click on a rest in an empty bar - to select that bar (it turns orange, as I would expect)
2 - go over to the Notes Panel on the left, and ‘load’ the mouse pointer with, say, a quaver (eighth note)
3 - return to the (previously-selected) bar, and double-click ready to enter my quaver (eighth note) on the desired beat…
…then the note loaded, the one which I’m trying to enter (there), reverts to the Dorico default, namely a crotchet (quarter note).
What should the correct sequence to do this be, please?
IOW, is there a way to keep a load loaded in the Notes Panel in such a way that it can be dropped onto the score indefinitely, as needed?
In truth, I suspect I am misunderstanding the way this is supposed to work anyway, because I’m unable (with the way I list above) to keep the dotted note in the Notes Toolbox selected; I must have to ‘crave indulgences’ .
