I am sometimes perplexed when entering tempo text and the “corrective” aspect of the program. For instance, when I write in the tempo popover box “poco a poco ritard” I get “poco ritard…” When I choose the “poco a poco” option in the options window below, I get “ritard poco a poco,” which is the reverse order from what I want.
Is this just how it is in Dorico and I need to enter the tempo as Shift-X text? I looked through engraving options and didn’t see anything about order.
Thanks for your response.
