One feature of Dorico keeps giving me a hang up: the way notes that have been tied together are permanently treated as “one note.” For instance, in my current piece I have 3 whole notes tied together. It is impossible to select only one of them to add a marking, it automatically selects all three and anything I add goes straight to the first one.
I’ve gotten around this with hairpins by moving them manually in Engrave mode, although this doesn’t seem ideal.
My issue now is that I have three whole notes that are tied together with a trill. The first two have a whole step trill, while the third shifts to a half step trill. So far, I can make the first trill end after the second whole note, but I can’t create a new trill just for the third whole note without overwriting the original trill.
I’ve tried reinputting the notes with “force duration” selected but they still get chained together. Does anyone know of a work around?
