When working with different ratio tuplets on a single staff or similar, the music on the other staves tends to look rather uneven due to Dorico’s automatic alignment of the music falling at mutual rhythmic positions. While this is the desired behaviour most of the time, there are times when you want to override it. Below follows an example:
In order to achieve the result shown in the second image, you have to manually drag the handles in the note spacing mode or input values into the ‘Voice column X offset’ box in the ‘Note Spacing’ section of the properties panel. In a large score with condensing turned on it takes up to 10 seconds per adjustments on my machine (see specs in my signature), which you probably can imagine how painstaking that would be… A possibility of evening out a passage independently from the other staves according to the current note spacing rules would therefore save a lot of time and headache.
Is that something worth considering or is there maybe an easier way to achieve this that I have missed?
All the best!
