This is a general question about notation convention that I have not seen answered anywhere. I’m scoring a pop tune in Dorico that has melodic notes (in the vocal melody) that precede the initial bar line. In other words, an 8th note tied over the bar to a 4th note. The problem is when I insert a repeat bar at the start of the verse section, the 2nd verse in the lyric is now missing the first note (which comes in before the repeat bar. What is the best solution for this?
I don’t want to add the pick up note at the end of the chorus section, because later on that will transition to a bridge
Also, on a related subject, does Dorico allow a tied note from the song proper over to a 2nd ending? It seems that it just plays the note twice rather than respecting the tie.
