I’ve a harp part whose melody spans between treble and bass clef staves (clefs not shown in the screenshot below; upper stave is treble, lower stave is bass).
To insert a phrase curve, when I select contiguous notes (C, E & F) in one phrase (shown by the square bracket in the screenshot), which occupy two staves, Dorico inserts TWO curves (as shown in the screenshot below): one for the notes on the lower stave and one for the notes on the upper. It also extends the phrase mark to include a note in the next bar (the A), which was never selected!
Why does Dorico ‘assume’ that the gap between grand staves splits melodies? It’s a nightmare to edit the false curves, and one can only do this in Engrave mode.
How can I get Dorico to insert the phrase mark properly, first time?
