Apologies; couldn’t immediately find a thread which I know MUST exist, but as a brand-new user I’m trying not to tear my teeth out in frustration.
I’m a professional composer of 30 years; I know how to notate. I just want to be able to explicitly enter notes or rests at whatever values I wish, as I have with Finale and Sibelius as I have since 1988. To start a bar with a rest, I want to enter a rest and move on. I do not understand how to enable this functionality/workflow. I do not want to have Dorico notate for me; I want it to input the music they way I want it notated. What am I missing?
