I’m fairly new to Dorico, so excuse what might be a daft question…
I’ve been typesetting a classical guitar duet. As is common with guitar music, I’ve selected “Allow Noteheads to overlap” in Notation Options in Write, so that I can notate an arpeggio over a sustained bass note with least clutter on the page.
I wanted to swap two sections of music between players and was delighted (that really was the word!) to find “Paste Special Swap” which is a REALLY neat function.
I drew round my music to select all the notes, copied, pasted and watched it make a terrible mess.
A bit of experimentation showed that drawing round overlapped noteheads only selected the upper voice.
My workaround was to disable notehead overlap, draw round the music, copy, paste special and then allow noteheads to overlap.
But am I missing something?
