Dorico has wonderfully complete notation and engraving settings, but I’m a little surprised that there are only two length settings for slur height and shoulder offset. Perhaps I’m missing something but it’s hard for me to find settings which look attractive at all slur lengths and angles. The defaults seem good for short and for long slurs but not for those in between, which look too flat for my taste, especially if they’re skewed. Has anyone experimented with this?
In general, I also miss being able to change the attachment note of the endpoint of a slur. There’s a specific case where I need to be able to override Dorico’s defaults. If a note is slurred to a tied note, officially one should slur to the final tied note but there are plenty of cases in which this would create incredibly long slurs which would only cause a lot of visual clutter. I can’t seem to find a way to create slurs from one note to the first tied note. Does anyone have any ideas?
