looking for something like Cubase's MIDI Legato

Hi, I can’t seem to find anything like this in the manual or here in the forums.

Is there any equivalent in Dorico to Cubase’s MIDI Legato?
MIDI > Functions > Legato

I’ve gotten used to doing step input by just punching 16ths into wherever there are note changes in the grid, then connecting them with MIDI legato to sort out all the note lengths for me. Seems like a time-saver.

Another nice approach is Ableton’s step input. Just hold down a MIDI key, then use left and right arrows to adjust length as needed. Let go the MIDI key and skip ahead with the arrows to input a rest. It achieves the same level of control without your hand having to jump between inputting note lengths vs grid position.

Sorry if this has already been addressed, couldn’t find it in search — thanks

I’m afraid Dorico doesn’t have anything like this at the moment, though it’s not the first time it’s been suggested. I agree that it would be useful to have a command that extends the selected note such that it abuts the next note in the same voice. We’ll add this at some point, but probably not imminently, I’m sorry to say.

I see…well, glad to hear it’s a possibility for future updates.
Thanks for taking the time!
