I’m quite new to Dorico, but I have a strange problem. I’ve started a new project, an SSAA arrangement of a song. The first thing I did in writing mode was setting up the key and then the time signature (in the right hand bar), as well as creating a pick-up measure.
However, after doing that I had no way of activating the Caret so that I could input notes, and if I try clicking on a bar (any bar) I can’t even select the pause that’s in there. However I can select Barlines, time/key-signatures and other things that are in the right hand bar.
I’ve tried pressing Enter as well as shift+N and I’ve tried double-clicking on bars, nothing happens. The notes on the left hand side were also grey at first (I couldn’t even select a note value), but they changed to black after I tried clicking around on various things. However, the issue didn’t resolve and I still can’t input notes.
What am I doing wrong? (I assume I’ve forgotten to activate something…)
