I’ve been noticing that when entering notes in 2/2, my preferences for note groupings in time signatures with half bars aren’t being followed. I’ll try to add a dotted half note to the start of the bar and Dorico turns it into a half note tied to a quarter note. The preferences work totally fine in 4/4. I’m guessing this may be because Dorico is treating 2/2 bars as a different category, but I can’t seem to set any preferences whatsoever for them (I may be missing the option somewhere). I’m hoping they can either be included in the category of “time signatures with half bars” or be given their own preferences. Or hopefully there is a way to adjust them somewhere already.
I should mention that I am running 1.2 – my apologies if this has been addressed in later updates! I did check through the documentation and did not find it addressed in any of the updates, but it’s certainly possible I missed it in there.
