Dorico does a great job in engraving music so far for me! Thanks to the developers! I really appreciate your work for the sake of the art of music engraving!
I am working at a piece of modern piano music at the moment, and I’m encountering some sophisticated problems e.g.:
The piece does not have a specific key signature, key or time signature - so it is treated as a single bar.
The composer has created a hand written manuscript and asked me to transfer it into a “digital version”.
So - I tried to recreate his idea of musical notation using Dorico.
In some passages of the piece, rests are notated “traditionally” (without beams) but on other passages, he wants to notate passages e.g. with sextuplets, which start with a rest using beams.
As these parts are not the majority, I set the default handling of beams to the 4th option (break beams on rests).
But at this particular parts, I want beams over rests.
Can Dorico handle this?
If not - maybe it is an idea to implement an option to apply engraving rules to a selected area only. (And to override them with another command, if I don’t want those exceptions anymore)
