tie notes

the HELP site states that D2 is autom. creating tie notes.
But no info how to do it manually. When I create normal slurs I still get separated notes on playback.
How do I create notes longer than a whole? Or how do I edit existing over-lengths?

This help page is pretty clear about how to enter ties: https://steinberg.help/dorico_pro/v2/en/dorico/topics/write_mode/write_mode_ties_inputting_t.html?hl=ties
I don’t know which page you were previously reading.
In pretty much all cases (whether inputting new notes, or selecting a chain of existing notes, or Cmd/Ctrl+selecting various notes from different voices), you just hit T.

oh man - I was in the INPUTTING TIES section.
The help can be confusing

You’ve just linked to exactly the same page I previously linked to, which is indeed the “inputting ties” page. I’m none the wiser…

I am so embarrassed now. My eyes need rest (if there wasn’t a deadline to keep) :blush:
