Hi, maybe I’m missing something but I’m finding it really painful working with long tied notes.
Say I have 2 whole notes tied together. If I want to change the second whole note to a half note, I have to untie it first, change the second note, then re-apply the tie. If it was 3 whole notes, I’d have to re-apply the 2 ties.
If I have a long series of tied whole notes, and want to put dynamics at several points, I end up having to untie and retie notes all over the place.
If I have a long tie ending part way through a bar followed by a series of notes, I can’t copy and paste the part of the tied note along with the following notes anywhere else. Unless - you guessed it… I untie it first. Then I have to patch it back up after.
It all boils down to 1 thing. Since a tied note is considered by Dorico to be a single note, all selections are based from the beginning.
This philosphy is highly problematic and causes a lot of extra work and pain.
It’s necessary to be able to select individual members of the tied note. Ctrl click would work for me, or just click.
