I think I read somewhere along the line that it’s possible in Dorico to highlight a passage and shift the whole thing forward or backwards a fixed distance without leaving the trailing notes you get in Sibelius when you use cut and paste to do the same thing as shown in the example below
stave 1 is what I accidentally wrote.
Stave 2 is what I want.
Stave three is what I get in Sibelius if I cut and paste the notes I want to the correct place.
It would be great if this operation could be done in one simple step.
