I’m entirely new to Dorico (specifically Dorico Elements 2), having used another program for a few years, and have some problems merging two notes, i.e., merge the same notes representing the first and second voice for classical guitar.
Attachment No. 1 shows how Dorico shows the notes, attachment No. 2 is how it should be.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
2nd screenshot didn’t post. Do you want them to line up horizontally so their noteheads overlap? If so, I don’t believe this is possible in Elements.
If this is what you want to do, you’d need Pro (which is what I usually recommend to prospective users anyways).
Sorry about the 2nd attachment - it’s been uploaded now.
Yes, I don’t believe you’re able to do this in Elements. Sorry!
That’s really too bad. This piece of music happens to come from the very first exercise that I used when starting to play the classical guitar. Dorico Pro, I’m afraid, is much more than I would need.
But thanks for your reply all the same.
Well, clearly not. You need engraving options here, which Pro provides.
It’s not a vastly different program by any means. You just have more control. This thread is proof of that!
. I’ll give it some thought.
Luc, the attached project has the two notation options that are not available in Dorico Elements to allow dotted and non-dotted noteheads to be superimposed set. Try doing File > Import > Flow into this project to bring your exercise into this file, and you should find it looks as you want it to.
