I feel like I’m constantly bumping up against Dorico’s inner preferences about rhythmic notation. I’ve been all the way through the options available for this and can’t seem to find a preference that fixes this.
In the attached graphic, I’d like the half note and quarter note (tied to each other, in the second and third visible measures) to become a dotted half note. Is there a rule for that? If not, how do I simply override it?
