I’m engraving a piece of a contemporary composer. Here is a problem I’m not able to solve. Please have a look:
Its a 7/8 bar. So the challenge is to write double dotted half notes in the last bar. Normally Dorico writes a half note and a tied dotted quarter note. But thats not the result I want to achieve. So my workflow was this: I forced the duration (o) of a double dotted half note. Thats easy. Then I tied (T) one note of each double stop:
Thats fine. But as soon as I tie the second note of a double stop, Dorico ignores the forced note duration:
How can I handle this issue? I have no idea …
Thanks in advance!
