I must be missing something.
I have 2 flutes, 2 oboes, and then a clarinet and a bass clarinet, then 2 bassoons.
I would like there to be a sub-bracket for my two clarinets, since they are the same family of instruments.
As it is, all of my woodwinds are perfectly bracketed together, and sub-brackets are applied when both staves of a pair are necessary (and absent when the two staves are condensed.)
However, I find myself having to manually add a sub-bracket for my two clarinets, and this has a bunch of annoying little glitches. It tends to break brackets elsewhere in the score and do weird stuff. (for example, when I get everything right, then add a sub-bracket to my clarinets on page 1, it suddenly breaks the full bracket that connects my 2nd bassoon to the other woodwinds, on page 5. It’s frustrating having to go through the score correcting this type of error. and every time I correct an error it only creates new ones. So there’s obviously some sort of glitch with the “insert sub-brackets” feature.)
Is there a setting in Dorico somewhere that will automatically bracket family instruments together?
