Always creates the explicit duration that you have specified on the notes panel. For example, you can activate Force Duration to force the input of a dotted quarter note on the second quarter beat of 4/4, where Dorico, by default, splits the note with a tie.
Any time signature changes or other edits to your music may lead to unexpected results.
If you activated Force Duration during input, you can remove the restrictions on how Dorico notates the music by selecting the affected passage of music and selecting Edit > Reset Appearance.
I understand. Is it possible to change the restrictions globally for this?
