Set cursor to beginning of measure when notes are tied


I’m in the process of writing the lead sheet to a pop song that is very syncopated the therefore has many ties across bar lines.
The chord changes though happen most of the times on beat 1 of the bar.

What is the easiest way to geht the cursor to beat 1 when there are ties across bar lines? When I click on the note that sits at beat one, the whole chain gets selected, and after pressing enter the cursor obviously is at the position where the first note in the chain sits.
Is there some easier way that I’m missing?

The simplest thing I can think of is to add another player without any notes, so when I click into these empty bars I always land on beat 1. But this feels very un-Dorico-y :smiley:

Thanks! :slight_smile:

In note input, press Cmd-right arrow to navigate to the next closest downbeat.

Or double click the staff where you want to invoke the caret, carefully avoiding any noteheads.
