Phrase Marks Not Going Where They Should, in Harp Parts

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?

If you Click on the C and then CTRL/CMD+Click on the F, you should get one slur spanning the three notes. (How you adjust the slur afterwards is up to you.)

Aah, Derrek, that’s clever. Thank you.

There seem to be a lot of clever people in this forum :innocent:

I actually genuinely think there are.

For reference, this is also suggested in the manual.
