Question on tempo change


I have a measure change from 4/4 to 12/8 and I want to indicate that a quarter becomes a dotted quarter. I trued to enter on the tempo line “q = q.”
But it is not recognised. Neither for the playback nor for the notation.

Is this something coming in the future or did I miss how to do it?

Many thanks in advance and regards, Felix

Dorico doesn’t yet support metric modulations, but they are on the wishlist.

For now, use Shift-X to enter them as text, and copy and paste the symbols you need from here:
