I’m confused by a certain note grouping behavior in Dorico. If I select a half note and try to turn it into a whole note, it turns into two tied half notes. (See first attachment). Despite the fact that I have the “Notes starting at the start of the bar… of multiple beats in duration” pref set to “Notate a single note”.
If I use Edit->Reset Appearance then the note turns into a whole note as I would expect. Is there a way to avoid this unwanted subdivision in the first place?
Thanks for any help!
