Random Notes from pattern

Hi there,

I just came across this notation in a score made in sibelius:


I was wondering if there is a good way of notating something like this in dorico.
Cheers!

Welcome
You can hide stems and hide noteheads in engrave mode.
For the “broken” you can use 2 voices and hide the notehead of the top voice.
If it isn’t notated in a open meter, you might use hidden tuplets.

I’m not sure how to create the brackets. I found solutions with playing techniques, usinge staff text or in my opinion the „cleanest“ way creating a custom horizonal line.
