Ornament codes within the shift+o field [solved]

Hi all,

Have had a look/search and can’t seem to find this info anywhere.
To create an ornament, I press shift+o - but once this is done, what are the key commands within that field to create specific ornaments?
Apologies if this has been discussed before - I can’t find on the forum anywhere (even using the advanced search).

Thanks in advance,


Try pages 3 and 4 of this document: https://steinberg.help/dorico/v1/extra/dorico-popovers.pdf

I realise it’s out of date, but most of it’s still accurate!

Perfect - thank you!
It turns out the problem was mainly contextual - same as when trying to enter dynamics etc. with the caret active isn’t always successful.
I just have to remember to press esc before using the popover prompt.
Thanks again for your help!

Dynamics popover with the caret on do work! But you need to gve that dynamic a rhythmic value once you’ve entered it. The best way is to select that vlue and press enter. I tell you because it is a very convenient way to make a pass and enter dynamics very precisely on a rhymical point of view. I bet it’s the same with ornaments.
