Overlapping Ties



Is it possible to combine the or chain the ties in the above?

My score is riddled with similar ties, which is making it look over-complicated.

I’d much prefer to display as:


Many thanks.

The outer line is a slur, rather than a tie. Select that slur and delete it, then select the 16th note (semiquaver) and hit T to tie it to the following quarter note.

The thinner “tie” in your first example actually looks like a slur. The ties have too much thickness - I’d recommend a thinner shape.

Thank you.

btw, the tie thicknesses is just cos I was messing about with it in Photoshop, not what’s displayed in Dorico.
