Ties between consecutive notes

Dorico (3.5) is driving me crazy, looking for some help. I know this must be super easy but I can’t make it work! I manage to make the first tie (see picture) but the second tie just doesn’t happen. I’m trying the procedure as mentioned here: Forcing the duration of notes/rests .

Thanks for your help!

I found a way to do it! Hope it works again later…

Have a look in Write > Notation Options > Note Grouping, there might be a default option that produces this notation for every instance of a note that long starting on the 3rd beat in a 4/4 bar.

Hi Lillie,
Thank you. It was not the reason it didn’t work eventually but good to know, thanks for the tip!
