I have a score in which many quarters on the second beat of a 4/4 bar are tied to an eighth. I’d like to replace these with dotted quarters but changing the first setting in Notation Options/Note Grouping to reflect this doesn’t do it and neither does a subsequent Reset Appearance. The quickest way I could find to do this was to press ‘.’ to turn the tied note into a quarter with an eighth rest, press ‘o’ for Force Duration and then press the ‘.’ again. Pretty good but shouldn’t changing the notation settings have done this automatically? If not, is there another way to do it all in one go?
