I am seeing some strange behaviors in multi-voice staves while working on a reduced SATB score (two staves)…
First, the triplet positioning is off by default—the default up-stem voice is correct, but the default down-stem voice has it on top as well, which creates confusion… I have manually placed it underneath, but I thought the software should know to do this by itself, no?
Then, when copying and pasting «or» alt-clicking, Dorico writes one voice properly while completely disregarding the triplets in the other, resulting in some strange music… for example, copying from—
and pasting later in the score, results in:
Is this a bug?
I also find it weird that Up-Stem Voice 1 in two different staves have different colors, and Down-Stem Voice 1 the same (e.g. piano, top staff: USV1=blue and DSV1=purple; bottom staff: USV1=pink (rather than blue!) and DSV1=green (rather than purple!). Shouldn’t all the USV1 notes have the same color, all DSV1 the same, and so on for the entire project???
As an aside, I am having a hard time working with voices—creating a new voice seemed straightforward enough, but after some copying and pasting and entering of notes, I noticed I had already 2 up-stem and 2 down-stem voices created and the input caret was showing “3+”… Anyway I turned on View > Voice Colors and used filtering with right-click > Voices > Change Voice > (etc) to fix all the voices, but I’m still not sure how I ended up with a fruit salad on my screen… Will try to be more careful from now on to see if I did something wrong, but any insights will be greatly appreciated.
