I’m encountering a weird issue while trying to add grace notes to a percussion kit staff.
I’m redoing an old Sibelius score in Dorico via XML import. The whole piece is about 350 bars, single flow, imported beautifully, no issues… except for this.
One of the instruments imported as a percussion kit. In one of the bars near the end of the piece, I need two grace notes (F+C, referring as treble clef pitches for convenience) before a quarter note. This is used many times throughout the piece with no problem. In this one single bar, I cannot add these as two separate grace notes. Whenever I try to do this, it creates a dyad, which is incorrect. Chord mode is off. And even stranger, the two bars following this spot have the exact same thing, and there’s no problem.
I know MusicXML import can introduce some weirdness, so I’m hoping someone might have a solution for this. I’ve tried pretty much everything I can think of, including deleting and re-engraving the passage from scratch. I’ve cut my project down to this spot and uploaded it here. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
